Aberdeen remains locked for three weeks despite council opposition

Thursday, August 20, 2020

Nicola Sturgeon said Aberdeen would shut for a third week because it was 'not yet safe' it could be lifted.

Since 26 July a total of 386 confirmed coronavirus cases have been recorded in Grampian and 220 of those have been linked to the Aberdeen cluster.

The First Minister said she hoped the restrictions against 'lower risk premises' such as cafes would be lifted starting next Wednesday and a review would go ahead mid-week on Sunday.
