Scottish tourism sector could reopen on 15 July

Scotland’s tourism businesses, including pubs, hotels and restaurants, have been told to prepare to reopen on 15 July.

Tourism Secretary Fergus Ewing said the date was conditional on moving to the third phase of the route map for easing lockdown restrictions.

He said businesses needed clarity to be able to plan for reopening and he announced a new taskforce.

But he warned the date may change if the evidence on Covid-19 requires it.
