Scotland’s Level 1 restrictions and the council areas that will be moving on June 7

Most of Scotland moved into Level 2 restrictions on May 17, allowing for a limited number of people to meet indoors and for indoor hospitality to reopen, following the change in the rules, alongside all holiday accommodation such as hotels, self-catering accommodation and campsites.

However, when permitted areas move into Level 1 on June 7, up to 6 people from 3 households can stay overnight in a home, and up to 8 people from 3 households in an indoor public place like a café, pub or restaurant, which can remain open later. 

Additionally, up to 12 people from 12 households outdoors in a private garden or a public place.

The Western Isles, Orkney, Shetland, all islands in the Highland Council area with the exception of Skye and the islands in the Argyll and Bute area, were moved into Level 1 on May 17, due to vaccination rollout and low case numbers. 

The First Minister said while the vaccination programme is having an effect on the level of serious illness from the virus, not enough people are fully protected.

“However – and this is why I have described our current situation as a transition – although we are vaccinating as quickly as possible, there is still a sizeable proportion of the population not yet fully vaccinated,” she said.

“And full vaccination is vital. Protection against the Delta variant after one dose is not negligible – but it is not substantial either. It is after two doses that the protection is much stronger.”

What are the current rules in Scotland?

Most of Scotland moved to Level 2 of lockdown restrictions on May 17, allowing for six people from three households to meet indoors, and eight people from eight households to meet outdoors.

Children under the age of 12 do not count towards this number of people meeting outside, but they do when gathering inside.

Pubs and restaurants can also remain open indoors until 10:30 pm in Level 2 areas, with alcohol allowed to be served indoors.
