Changes to Meeting Others

How we meet others outdoors is changing in Scotland from midnight tonight, 4th January 2021.

In her emergency statement today, measures were unveiled to help prevent the spread of covid 19.

From tomorrow, a maximum of only two people from up to two households will be able to meet outside. It sees an end to small groups over several households meeting as they do at present.

Children aged 11 and under won’t be counted in that limit, and they will also be able to play outdoors in larger groups.

Everyone else including 12 to 17-year-olds can only exercise outdoors in a way which is consistent with the two people from two households rule. The frequency of outdoor exercise will NOT be limited like it was last year, with people able to exercise outdoors more than once each day.

These measures are expected to remain in force until at least 1st February 2021, though will be reviewed in mid January.
