COVID-19 Protection Levels Update: Falkirk Entering Level 1

June 5


Scottish Government has announced that, from Saturday 5th June, Falkirk will enter Level 1 of the COVID-19 protection tiers.

However, many of the surrounding areas (including Stirling and Clackmannanshire) will remain in Level 2 due to their higher number of confirmed cases. Glasgow will also enter Level 2.

Level 1 restrictions mean that, amongst others:

  • you should still work from home where possible
  • you can meet socially in groups of up to:
    • 6 people from 3 households in your home or theirs, and can stay overnight
    • 8 people from 3 households in an indoor public place like a café, pub or restaurant
    • 12 people from 12 households outdoors
  • under 12s do not count towards the total number of people or households meeting outside but do count towards household numbers indoors
  • you do not need to physically distance from family and friends in a private home
  • you can travel anywhere in Scotland in Levels 0, 1 or 2 but must not enter a Level 3 or 4 area unless for a permitted reason
  • you can travel to England, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands (but check the travel rules in those countries before travelling)
  • you can provide informal childcare, for example to look after a grandchild
  • up to 100 people can attend weddings and funerals
  • tradespeople can carry out any work in your home such as painting, decorating or repairing
  • only a few types of businesses (including nightclubs) must remain closed

Social distancing, masks and hand sanitiser is still required in public places (unless exempt).
