Today we were given the first detailed indication of how Scotland may move out of lockdown:
- It will be a four phase process, with the first likely to begin from Thursday 28 May.
- In Phase 1 you will be able to meet up with another household outoors while maintaining social distancing.
- Staff will return to schools next month, but pupils won't be back until 11 August with some degree of home learning still continuing.
- Sports like golf, tennis, kayaking and angling will be permitted during the first phase.
- Garden centres and drive through restaurants will also reopen.
- Some outdoor work will resume and childminding services can begin again.
The situation will be reviewed every three weeks and the government has cautioned it may take months or longer before we can move into Phase 4, when mass gatherings and normal school interaction will be possible.
In other news, the Scottish Conservatives have called for the resignation of Health Secretary Jeane Freeman after it emerged that far more elderly people were released from hospital into care homes to clear beds, than she previously said. On Reporting Scotland Nicola Sturgeon rejected the call.
We'll be back early tomorrow with more live updates of the latest developments. Don't forget the weekly Clap for Carers event.
