Government discussions are now being held on whether additional coronavirus restrictions will be imposed in Lanarkshire.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said the number of new cases in the region was “causing some particular concern”. Public health experts will be holding discussions about the situation over the course of the day.
Ms Sturgeon said it was “possible” that additional restrictions may have to be announced later on today (Friday) or over this weekend. Her comment makes it increasingly likely something is expected to be announced for Lanarkshire area.
NHS Lanarkshire warned last week that both North and South Lanarkshire were “very close” to having restrictions imposed, similar to those in Glasgow and other neighbouring areas.
