Humza Yousaf: the situation can change suddenly

Travellers arriving into Scotland from Hungary will be required to self-isolate for 14 days, while Sweden has been taken off the quarantine list.

The changes take place from 4am on Saturday.

Justice Secretary Humza Yousaf said: “We are in the midst of a global pandemic and the situation in many countries can change suddenly. So people should think very hard before deciding to travel abroad unless it is really necessary.

Despite the increase in cases in Scotland, the infection rate here is still relatively low and any importation of new cases is a significant risk to public health. 

“I would also encourage people who have returned to Scotland from Hungary or La Réunion in the last few days to be particularly careful in their social contacts and to ensure they stick to the FACTS.
