The Scottish Government has now relaxed restrictions, and moved Scotland to level three, bringing significant easing of restrictions for retail and hospitality.
You can read more about these measures and the very latest Scottish Government guidance here.
Under this move to level 3 hospitality venues such as cafés, pubs and restaurants can reopen, with a number of restrictions still in place.
Non-essential retail outlets and close contact services such as beauty salons can reopen as can travel accommodation.
In addition, indoor attractions and public buildings such as galleries, museums and libraries can also open.
Groups of up to six people from two households can meet in an indoor public place such as a café, pub or restaurant.
Six people from six households can also meet outdoors, in a private garden or a public place like a park.
Under 12s do not count towards the total number of people or households meeting outside – but do count towards the numbers of households meeting indoors.
Renfrewshire has a great range of outdoor attractions for exercise and recreation, provided you follow the existing guidance. Find out more about places you can visit in Renfrewshire here.
As local retail, tourism and hospitality businesses open their doors we would encourage those who can to support them by spending local where possible.
It’s vital that we all continue to follow the guidance and help stop the spread of coronavirus. Nothing is more important to us than your health and wellbeing.
