Nicola Sturgeon's deputy hints at stricter travel quarantine than rest of UK for Scotland

John Swinney discusses travel restrictions in Scotland

The Deputy First Minister of Scotland told Scottish Parliament that the SNP has been in touch with the UK Government regarding hotel quarantine. Mr Swinney also stated that Scotland may go "further" than the quarantine restrictions imposed by the UK.

Scotland's Deputy First Minister said: "The Scottish Government believes that a comprehensive system of supervised quarantine is required.

"So, I can confirm that the Scottish Government will initially go at least as far as any UK Government announcement in enhancing quarantine arrangements, including through the use of hotels.

"However if these UK restrictions are at a minimal level, we will look at other controls we can announce - including additional supervised quarantine measures - that can further protect us from importation of the virus, and we will set those out next week."
