On 11 May First Minister Nicola Sturgeon made a statement from St Andrew's House announcing further easing of restrictions from 17 May. All mainland Scotland, with the likely exception of Moray, will move to level 2, meaning six people from three households can meet in each other's homes and stay overnight. Pubs can serve alcohol indoors until 10.30, and cinemas and theatres, concert halls, amusement arcades, and bingo halls can open.

The Scottish Government has announced a new Covid-19 Self-Isolation Support Grant for individuals who are in receipt of low-income benefits and who will lose income as a result of being required to self-isolate to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
If you have been asked by NHS Test and Protect Service to self-isolate on or after 28 September 2020, either because you have tested positive for Covid-19 or you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive, you may be entitled to a £500 Self-Isolation Support Grant.
