Scotland’s to enter five-tier Covid alert level system

Scotland Correspondent

Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has outlined a five-tier system of measures to curb the spread of coronavirus which will come into force next month – with the highest level closer to the lockdown imposed across the UK in March.

Much of Scotland is already under a high level of restrictions which have forced restaurants and bars to close.
