GLASGOW DROPS TO LEVEL 2 AS CORONAVIRUS RESTRICTIONS EASE ACROSS SCOTLAND

Glasgow has finally dropped to Level 2 of Scotland’s coronavirus measures as restrictions have been eased across the country.

While the whole of mainland Scotland was supposed to move to Level 1 on Monday, the city will join 13 other council areas in remaining in Level 2 for another few weeks.

These are Edinburgh, Midlothian, Dundee, East Dunbartonshire, Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire, East Ayrshire, North Ayrshire, South Ayrshire, North and South Lanarkshire, Clackmannanshire and Stirling.

Glaswegians will be able to drink alcohol indoors, meet in private residences, and hug loved ones from the weekend for the first time in months.

When announcing the move on Tuesday, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon admitted while the Level 2 restrictions were “still tough” she also insisted it was “not lockdown”. She added: “We can go into each other’s homes, we can see hospitality open, stay open indoors, so there are significant steps there.”
