On 23 October the Scottish Government announced a new system of ‘protection levels’. The 5-level system was produced to help people understand and prepare for protections that might be introduced, as well as showing how and when they may be lifted.

This new system took effect on 2 November. Details of the system can be found here.


When will restrictions be eased?

Any changes to the lockdown status in Scotland only occur if the Scottish Government are satisfied that there is sufficient evidence that transmission of COVID-19 is being controlled and there is a sustained decline in new infections, COVID-19 related admissions to hospital, and deaths attributed to COVID19 for at least 3 weeks.

There are no ‘start dates’ to each phase of recovery, but the Scottish Government will review the plan every three weeks as a minimum.  The Scottish Government have stated that the speed that we enter new phases will be determined by evidence and if the disease risk is deemed to increase at any stage, it is possible to move back a phase to reduce this risk. It is possible that changes to restrictions may be apply regionally or nationally.

Updated guidance about what you can and cannot do is available here
