Kate Forbes MSP (pictured) has welcomed the start of ‘phase two’ measures following the Scottish Government’s route map out of lockdown.
Following the strict social distancing guidelines, some families have been able to reunite indoors as well as outdoors, helping to reduce loneliness and isolation.
Construction work has restarted, and next week (29 June 2020) restrictions on play parks, house moves, weddings, zoos and some shops will be relaxed.
Kate Forbes, MSP for Skye, Lochaber and Badenoch, said:
“We have all sacrificed a lot over the last few months, and the route map out of the lockdown gives hope that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
“Phase two is staggered over several weeks, with weddings allowed, some shops re-opening and key services resuming.
“I know this will restore some of the quality of life that we have missed.
“Perhaps the highlight will be that families and friends can be reunited.”
