10 Sep Coronavirus: Scotland cuts limit on social gatherings to six people from two households | UK News
Scotland is to limit social gatherings to a maximum of six people from two households – both indoors and outdoors, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has announced.
Coronavirus rules in the nation had previously stated up to eight people from three different households were allowed to meet indoors.
Ms Sturgeon said the move was “the only responsible decision we can reach” given the rise in COVID-19 cases.
And she added that the reopening of call centres and offices where staff are still working from home would “definitely not take place” before October 1, when this will be reviewed.
“For now, working from home will remain the default position,” Ms Sturgeon said.
