Scotland bans visits to other households across entire country from Wednesday

Visits to other household will be banned across Scotland from Wednesday, Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has announced.

The country will introduce additional nationwide restrictions on household gatherings that go further than UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson's new rules, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said, to halt a second wave of coronavirus hitting the country.

"We intend, as Northern Ireland did yesterday, to also introduce nationwide additional restrictions on household gatherings, similar to those already in place in the west of Scotland," Sturgeon said on Tuesday.
