Nicola Sturgeon formally extends lockdown in Scotland for another three weeks
THE coronavirus lockdown “must be extended” in Scotland and easing any restrictions would be “very, very risky,” Nicola Sturgeon has announced.
The first minister said she would prefer all four of the UK’s nations to keep the same rules and only change them in tandem – after Boris Johnson said he wants to “get going” on plans to slightly ease restrictions in England. She announced the extension during today’s daily press conference, the First Minister addressed the nation from St Andrew’s House in Edinburgh.
But she did say she is considering allowing people in Scotland to exercise outdoors more than once a day.
