This publication provides an update on the approach to physical distancing in Scotland as we move through the COVID-19 crisis. This approach continues to be informed by evidence and has been updated in light of published advice from the Scottish Government COVID-19 Advisory Group.
The publication also briefly updates on the final stage of Phase 2. Continued progress in suppressing the virus, as measured by the latest data, means that we are able to confirm the indicative dates for the remainder of Phase 2, concerning relaxation of the 5 mile guidance, the re-opening of self‑contained, self-catering accommodation and the re‑opening of outdoor hospitality. Changes concerning the rules on children and young-people meeting up are also set out.
