At the start of July, the First Minister announced changes to requirements for physical distancing amongst young children who are not shielding.
As Scotland is now in Phase 3 of recovery, children under 12 years old can now play with their friends without having to social distance, or keep 2 metres apart. They also do not need to keep 2 metres apart from older children or adults outside of their household (unless these people are in the increased risk category).
Children can now meet up to 15 friends from up to 4 households outdoors, or up to 8 friends from up to 2 households indoors.
Children over 12 years old still need to socially distance at this time.
For further information on how Phase 3 guidance and restrictions affect children and families, please visit the Parent Club page (which is updated regularly).
