First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has confirmed that the planned lockdown easing will go ahead on Monday May 17, but it is unlikely just yet for Moray.


Most other council areas will move from level three to level two and some islands will move to level one.


Ms Sturgeon says that unless the case rate in Moray improves significantly over the next few days it will remain in level three. A final decision will be made on Friday.


For areas moving down levels, people will be allowed to meet indoors again, initially in groups of up to six from three households, and they will be allowed to hug. However, the first minister says everyone should continue to be cautious and adhere to the rules.


Indoor hospitality will resume, with alcohol being served in pubs or restaurants until 10.30pm.


From May 17, people in Scotland will be allowed to travel to some destinations without having to quarantine on their return. The traffic light system will be the same as for England, which is also making the changes from the same date.
