First Minister of Scotland, @theSNP Leader and MSP for Glasgow Southside.
Today is a big step out of lockdown. Please act safely & responsibly. Let’s all #KeepTheHeid & remember FACTS: 🇫Face coverings in enclosed spaces 🇦Avoid crowded places 🇨Clean hands & surfaces regularly 🇹Two metre distancing 🇸Self isolate & book a test if you have symptoms
This map (from @FT) shows the progress we’ve made in Scotland against COVID. But we mustn’t drop our guard. Please keep following the advice on face coverings, avoiding crowded places, cleaning hands, physical distancing and testing/self isolating if you have symptoms.
PLEASE stay away from crowded places - even outdoor ones. With a virus as infectious as COVID out there (and it is still out there) behaviour like this is highly dangerous and could so quickly send all our progress into reverse - with devastating consequences #StaySafe
The reports from Glasgow City Centre are truly dreadful. My thoughts are with everyone involved. I am being updated as the situation becomes clearer. Please help the emergency services do their jobs by staying away from the area - and please don’t share unconfirmed information.
If you plan on visiting shops today, please do so responsibly. Maintain physical distancing, follow hygiene advice, wear a face covering and respect staff who may be asking you to shop differently. We’ve made so much progress against the virus - let’s not squander it. #StaySafe
Make no mistake, this would be a full scale assault on devolution - a blatant move to erode the powers of the Scottish Parliament in key areas. If the Tories want to further boost support for independence, this is the way to do it.
