Restrictions in Scotland likely to remain until late July - Sturgeon

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said on Tuesday coronavirus restrictions in Scotland will likely stay in place for three weeks after June 28, the date when the government previously planned to lift most measures. She added the time will be used "to vaccinate with both doses as many people as possible."

"We need to buy yourselves sufficient time for vaccination to get ahead and to stay ahead of the virus, and that is a reason for caution to be exercised at this juncture," Sturgeon said. She added the Scottish government is making preparations for the possible vaccination for 12 to 17-year-olds and awaiting guidance on the need for booster shots this fall.
