Level One Restrictions

Here’s what life under level one restrictions would look like.

Under level one rules no in-home socialising is permitted, with limited exceptions. Groups of six from a maximum of two households are able to gather in indoor and outdoor public settings. According to the Scottish government different rules will apply to children, though these have not yet been specified.

The sale of food and alcohol is permitted in indoor and outdoor venues, though a 10.30pm curfew is in place for all hospitality settings.

Hotels, B&Bs, self-catering, caravan and camp sites are allowed to operate under these restrictions so long as socialising and hospitality rules are adhered to.

Those living in a level one setting are advised against non-essential travel to/from level 3 or higher areas in Scotland and equivalents in the rest of the UK, with limited exceptions.

Car sharing should be avoided where possible while face coverings are compulsory on public transport. Close contact services such as hairdressers and barbers will be allowed to operate in level one. Mobile close contact services can also operate at this level.

In level one stadia can reopen with restricted numbers and small events in indoor settings can take place. Outdoor events with restricted numbers can also take place. Weddings, and civil partnerships and funerals are all subject to 20 person limits. All sports and exercise is permitted with the exception of indoor contact sports
