Annex 1. Scottish pandemic restriction phases.

In the first lockdown, the Scottish government announced a route map out of lockdown that included 3 phases:

In Phase 1 two households (max 8 people) were allowed to meet in outdoor spaces with physical distancing, public outdoor spaces could be used recreationally, people were allowed to travel short distances for outdoor leisure and exercise but should remain in your local area, and food outlets, were able to provide take-away.

In Phase 2 three households could meet outside, some non-essential retail could open, places of worship could re-open for individual prayer, professional sport could resume, and some indoor (non-office) workplaces (factories etc) could resume.

In Phase 3, a household could meet up to 4 other households (max 15 people) at a time outdoors, and 2 households indoors. Organised outdoor physical activity resumed for children and young people, attractions (such as museums, libraries, cinemas) could open with physical distancing, and hairdressers, childcare providers and indoor hospitality could reopen.
