Liberal Democrats in Aberdeen have welcomed the Scottish Government's announcement that the local lockdown in the city is to end.
Liberal Democrat Group Leader on Aberdeen City Council Ian Yuill said, "The decision by the Scottish Government to end Aberdeen's local lockdown is welcome. Every day the lockdown continued - necessary though that was - damaged local businesses, jobs, and Aberdeen's economy.
"The commitment of people in Aberdeen to sticking to the local lockdown rules and the hard work of NHS staff has driven down the Coronavirus infection rate to a point where it is now possible to end the local lockdown. Every single person and business in Aberdeen must continue to stick to all the rules and guidelines to minimise the risk of a further Coronavirus outbreak in Aberdeen. A further outbreak, with the attached risk of a further local lockdown, would be disastrous for our city and its economy."
