After being on lockdown for 66 days, Scotland enters its first day of out its strict measures. This makes the Scottish nation the first of the UK’s constituents to ease into a new phase of social distancing methods.

The nation has been under lockdown for more than 2 months, and has officially come into their ease on lockdown extremes. Scotland has seen a consistent drop in coronavirus infections and deaths per day, and have premised the decision to ease into their lockdown measures due to these consistent drops.

The First Minister Nicola Sturgeon detailed what should be expected from members of the public as the nation officially embarks on this new phase. Considering the high stakes that are involved, the First Minister was direct and concise about the lockdown not being over and that the nation is still susceptible to encountering a resurgence in the pandemic.

Scotland has been prepping for their anticipated reintroduction into society for a while now, and have configured a new normal that incorporates more lenient restrictions for its people. In order to avoid a second wave of the virus, the First Minister instructed locals to practice vigilance and prioritize the same sentiments that were echoed during the initial lockdown.

But as the nation officially enters into its first day of ‘normalcy’ post-lockdown, Deputy to the First Minister John Swinney, cautioned against people being overly-excited about re-entering into society after months of isolation.

“We have had an extraordinary level of public compliance so far and we need to see that sustained as we move through each of the phases going forward” said Mr Swinney.

As the nation experiences their first day out of extreme lockdown measures, they may perhaps provoke other nations to take on those exact forms of discipline and lead them to ease their own extremes.
