First Minister Reveals Measures To Cancel Large Gatherings Over Coronavirus

Scottish football could be set for major disruption after First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon has advised that gatherings of more than 500 people be cancelled from next week.

Ms Sturgeon said the move was to “protect” the “resilience” of essential staff.

This will likely mean that sporting events will be postponed or played behind closed doors in order to help ease the pressure on emergency services.

Speaking ahead of a Cobra meeting today, Ms Sturgeon said: “Mass gatherings are required to be policed, they require to have emergency ambulance cover, they require the services of our voluntary health services, and at a time when we need to be reducing the pressures on these front-line workers in order to free them up on the significant challenge that lies ahead, I do think it is inappropriate that we continue as normal.”
