Nicola Sturgeon swiped at Boris Johnson ‘throwing caution to the wind’ today as she made clear face masks will still be compulsory in Scotland after July 19.
The SNP leader said the PM’s ‘Freedom Day’ approach was ‘something of an exception’ as she insisted she will not take ‘easy decisions’ to be popular.
Ms Sturgeon also voiced concern that the coverage of Mr Johnson’s announcements will ‘confuse’ Scots – stressing that precautions such as face coverings will continue north of the border.
The jibes, at a Covid briefing in Edinburgh, came after Mr Johnson vowed to tear up most of England’s regulations at Step 4 of the unlocking roadmap.
Masks will be optional from the middle of the month, and all social distancing laws will be dropped.
Ms Sturgeon struck a positive note saying there is a ‘suggestion that the recent surge in cases may be to some extent levelling off’.
