"The advice this week from the Scottish Government continues to be to Stay at Home to Protect yourselves and others. Published on Thursday 21st of May was the plan to phase out of lockdown hopefully from Thursday 28th of May. It was further announced that schools in Scotland will return with a ‘blended model’ of educational delivery on 11th of August.
All of this depends on the R number – the rate of transmission of Covid19 remaining well below 1. It is estimated that for three weeks it has been between 0.7 and 1.0. This is primarily due to Scotland being in lockdown for 9 weeks which has prevented onward transmission of the virus."
