A new tiered system of restrictions comes into effect on Monday 2 November.

A tiered system of coronavirus restrictions came into force on November 2.

After the first weekly review, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said in the Scottish Parliament on Tuesday that three local authorities will move from level two to three on Friday.

While the majority of council areas see no change, Fife, Perth and Kinross, and Angus will get tougher restrictions.

Scotland’s central belt, Dundee, Inverclyde and Ayrshire remain in the third tier. Aberdeenshire, Aberdeen, the Borders, Dumfries and Galloway, and Argyll and Bute are in level two.

Areas in the Highlands and Islands stay in level one. No local authority area has yet been placed in level zero or four.

However, a maximum of six people from two households meeting indoors will now be allowed in Orkney, Shetland and the Western Isles.
