Scottish First Minister Covid-19 Statement  

Published 3rd August 2021
 
Today, Scottish First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon MSP, confirmed that all of Scotland will be moving beyond covid-19 Level 0 as planned on August 9th. It will continue to be the law that face coverings will be required in indoor settings and close contacts of a positive covid-19 case will no longer need to self-isolate if they have been double vaccinated and provide a negative PCR result in Scotland.

The current data shows that:
• 1,016 cases of Covid-19 were confirmed yesterday
• There are 406 people in hospital with Covid-19 and 61 are receiving critical treatment
• Sadly, there were 9 Covid-19 related deaths reported yesterday
The First Minister confirmed that the move beyond level 0 is a result of the vaccination programme going well with 4,014,212 having received their first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine and 3,231,331 receiving a second dose.

The Scottish Government has confirmed that all areas of Scotland will move beyond alert Level 0 on August 9th as planned, which will result in the removal of most legal restrictions such as physical distancing and limits on social gatherings. The government announced that from August 9th no venues will be legally required to stay shut anymore, however the First Minister also announced some mitigation protocols that will stay in place.

It will continue to be the law that face coverings will be required in indoor settings in Scotland and indoor venues will still be required to record contact details of customers for the Test and Protect service. The government will also continue to produce updated guidance for businesses and individuals on protective measures such as hand washing and ventilation.

Finally, the Scottish Government confirmed that when the country moves beyond level 0 on August 9th, close contacts of a positive covid-19 case will no longer need to self-isolate if they have been double vaccinated and provide a negative PCR result. Individuals who test positive or show symptoms of covid-19 will still need to isolate regardless of their vaccination status.
