Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has revealed a new five-tier system for dealing with COVID-19 over the winter months.

The new alerts will begin from 2 November and will be reviewed on a weekly basis.

“If we allow the virus to run out of control, all other harms will be exacerbated. Everything we do must be consistent in suppressing COVID,” Ms Sturgeon told reporters as she announced the new system.

In the five levels of intervention, Level 0 is the “closest to normality – broadly comparable to the position we reached in August when virus was suppressed but a threat,” said the First Minister.

Level 4 is the highest and closest to a full lockdown.

Ms Sturgeon said restrictions are necessary and businesses might have to close for short periods, but substantial support will be available.
