From today, Scotland have began to ease lockdown rules, as people from different households are able to meet outdoors, ensuring they are two meters apart.

Although people are urged to stay at home still, groups of up to eight will be allowed to meet outdoors.

First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, announced that the county is ready to introduce the first phase of their route map.

Outdoor work that was resumed due to the outbreak can also now be resumed, for example construction companies, garden centres and recycling centres will all be able to reopen.

From Monday, teachers and other staff will be allowed to return to schools, although the pupils will not return until 11th August where they will resume a blended model of education, from being in school and at home.

Outdoor leisure activities including sports will be allowed to resume, as long as the social distancing measures can be kept in place.
