It also “recommends” not to go abroad except for essential reasons
The massacre will be compulsory in public spaces in Scotland “for a time”, but those vaccinated in the United Kingdom will not have to keep ten days of quarantine when returning from Spain and other countries classified as amber risk. This was confirmed by the main minister of the autonomous territory, Nicola Sturgeon, when announcing the measures against the coronavirus that will come into force on July 19.
That day the number of people who will share a table under the same roof will be expanded, which will be ten in bars and up to 200 at weddings and funerals. But the pubs and the rest of the hospitality sector must close at midnight, before the originally scheduled time.
The novelty is the relaxation of international travel abroad, although Sturgeon maintains “the recommendation” not to go abroad except for essential reasons. Those vaccinated with the British regimen who return from a medium-risk country should have a PCR before and a second after the displacement. Of course, they will get rid of the current requirement of self-isolation that will also be eliminated in England.
Sturgeon hopes to lift all emergency legal restrictions on August 9, when much of the population will be fully vaccinated. Scotland has been the British nation with the highest rate of infections during this latest wave of the delta variant, initially identified in India.
The peak of infections is believed to be over and is currently around 2,500 positives a day. 11.5% of the test results recorded yesterday were positive and 506 people were hospitalized. Of the 5.4 million residents, including children under 12 years of age, 3.9 million had received a first dose and 2.9 the full regimen. The World Health Organization estimates an incidence between 328 and 515 per 100,000 in the three regions in which it classifies Scotland.
