Nicola Sturgeon advises building sites to close

SCOTLAND’S first minister, Nicola Sturgeon, has advised building sites to close amidst the Covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.

In her daily briefing (23 March), the first minister said, “I want to reiterate that if you run a business and if the nature of your business makes it difficult for you or your workers to work from home or to practice safe social distancing then you should close.

“This morning I was asked on radio about building sites and hair salons and my advice would be to close.”
