New Coronavirus restrictions

by Ian Yuill on 10 October, 2020

As Coronavirus infection and hospital admission numbers rise, the Scottish Government has announced further restrictions affecting all of Scotland

Additional, even tighter, restrictions are now in place in the Central Belt.

The biggest change affecting areas outside the Central Belt is that the sale of alcohol will be only permitted outdoors until Sunday 25th October.

Key points are:

  • All hospitality premises (pubs, bars, cafes, restaurants, members clubs) can operate indoors from 6am until 6pm for food and non-alcoholic drinks.
  • All hospitality premises can operate outdoors until 10pm for food, non-alcoholic drinks and alcoholic drinks.
  • Hotel restaurants will be able to operate beyond 6pm hours for residents only and without alcohol. The consumption of food and non alcoholic drinks in public areas must cease by 10pm hours as per the current measures.
  • Any funerals or weddings which have been booked to take place during this period are permitted to go ahead under current measures.

All of the above must comply with current physical distancing measures including up to six people from maximum two different households meeting at any one time. Physical distancing between households must remain in place at all times.

You can find more information from the Scottish Government on the rules for meeting friends and family, shopping, drinking and eating out, travel, gatherings and occasions and more here.
