Coronavirus Scotland: Don’t plan to travel at Christmas, Nicola Sturgeon warns | Scotland
Families planning to visit distant relatives for Christmas should postpone their travel plans, Nicola Sturgeon said.
The first minister said it was too early to plan Christmas and urged people not to book flights or public transport tickets to other parts of the UK. Flights are very expensive during the holiday season and many people book early to secure a seat.
Jason Leitch, National Clinical Director for Scotland, said the fortnightly pub and restaurant shutdown was “the price you pay” to let Scots visit relatives for Christmas. However, Ms. Sturgeon has now stated that for several weeks it will not be known whether the “breaker” has worked and that he cannot guarantee an unrestricted household visit
