Coronavirus: Scotland to keep two-metre rule and make face coverings in shops mandatory | UK News



The two-metre rule is going to remain in place in Scotland – and wearing face coverings in shops will become mandatory on 10 July.

Nicola Sturgeon made the announcement during a statement on the next steps of the country’s coronavirus response.

She said: “The continued low prevalence of the virus means we can go ahead with changes.

“That means outdoor hospitality such as pavement cafes and beer gardens can reopen from Monday… and although tourism won’t open fully until 15 July, self-contained holiday accommodation… can reopen from tomorrow.”
