Coronavirus restrictions will be relaxed in most of Scotland from 17 May, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has announced.
Most of the country will be moved down from Level 3 restrictions to Level 2 on Monday, which allows up to four people from two households to meet indoors in a private home. In addition, pubs will be able to re-open indoors, on the same day that restrictions are also being eased in England.
Cinemas, bingo halls and other venues will also be able to re-open indoors, though nightclubs will remain closed.
The Moray area is set to remain under Level 3 restrictions, following an outbreak of the virus.
The planned lockdown easements in most of Scotland come as the current 7-day case rate in the country is at just 21.1 cases per 100,000 people.
