1 min read

Nicola Sturgeon has confirmed Stirling have been placed on Level Three of the new coronavirus system. All three council areas within Forth Valley are also in Level Three.

These restrictions come into place on Monday November 2 from 6am. No local authorities across Scotland have been placed in Level Zero or Level Four. With only Level One to Three applying across the country.

The third level keeps restrictions similar to those currently in place across the Central Belt. Restaurants and bars can now reopen but still have restricted opening times until 6pm and are not allowed to sell alcohol.

Under level three, indoor mixing is still banned. Although groups of six from a maximum of two households are allowed to meet outside and in public places including hospitality premises.

Travelling out of your area is not recommended under Level Three but services including hairdressers, barbers and beauticians will be allowed to stay open.

The main statistical data being used to decide on which levels apply to which areas include: cases per 100,000 people, test positivity rates, the cases per 100,000 people forecast, and hospital and intensive care admission forecasts.

Stirling had 859 estimated cases this week up by 367 from last week.
