Pandemic: non-essential retailers will close in 11 areas in Scotland from Friday

GlasgowInteriors retailer across large parts of Scotland will have to close for three weeks from Friday.

11 council areas will move to level four restrictions, which includes closure of non-essential stores, from 6pm on Friday.

These are: City of Glasgow, Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire, East Dunbartonshire, West Dunbartonshire, North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, East Ayrshire, South Ayrshire, Stirling and West Lothian.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon told MSPs: ‘I know people are frustrated that other restrictions have remained in place longer than planned. But level 4 is intended to be short and sharp. And in this situation, it is specifically intended to have an impact in advance of Christmas and the most challenging winter period.

‘We will assess nearer the time the level that will apply in each area when the level 4 restrictions end on 11 December.’
