Recent Changes to Lockdown
- You can play golf, tennis and similar outdoor non contact sports
- You can socialise with one other household outside
- You can sit or sunbathe in a public space such as a park
- But you must maintain social distancing measures
Scotland has moved to phase one of a four-step plan to ease out of lockdown. It means people are allowed to go outside as much as they like and can meet people from one other household at a time, provided the meeting is outside and they socially distance from each other.
That includes in public areas like a park or a private garden, but the total number of people meeting up should be a maximum of eight.
Garden centres, drive-through restaurants and recycling centres can all now open and teachers will be able to enter schools to prepare for re-opening in August. East Lothian Council has also re-opened recycling centres (with restrictions).
Please also note that guidance suggests you should not travel more than five miles from home to socialise, take exercise or meet friends and family.
