Scotland will return to a regional tiers system of lockdown alerts as restrictions start to ease, Nicola Sturgeon revealed today.
The First Minister indicated her plans one day before the Scottish Government’s “route map” is published.
It will not list dates, but will indicate what order the country can reopen from the harsh winter lockdown if covid continues to be beaten back.
Sturgeon, at today’s coronavirus briefing, said: “We will seek to set out tomorrow an indicative order of priority and the likely phasing of firstly the gradual lifting of the current lockdown restrictions and then in due course, a return to the geographic levels system when we would decide whether all or parts of the country may move out of Level 4 and into Level 3, and of course that’s the part where more parts of the economy will start to open up.
“This will be a cautious way forward because it’s really important that as we come out of this lockdown, we do so sustainably.”
