Eleven local authorities continue to be in the toughest level four restrictions. Rules are similar to the lockdown in March, although this time schools have remained open. All non-essential shops, as well as pubs and restaurants, gyms, libraries and hairdressers, are closed. The restrictions will be in place until 18:00 on 11 December.

Six people from two households can meet indoors if they are resident in Shetland, the Western Isles and Orkney. This does not apply to the other council areas. Level one sees a "reasonable" degree of normality. Hospitality has a 22:30 curfew. Events, like weddings, would be restricted to a maximum of 20 people. Indoor contact sports for adults are not permitted. Only those unable to work from home should go to their place of employment. Up to eight people from three households can meet outdoors.

  • Highland
  • Moray
  • Orkney (indoor visits allowed)
  • Shetland (indoor visits allowed)
  • Western Isles (indoor visits allowed)

No local authority has been assigned this level. At level zero, hospitality would operate "almost normally" - subject to rules on physical distancing, limits on numbers and other rules, such as table service.
