Edinburgh will remain Level 2 First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, has announced.
Ms Sturgeon confirmed the news in a statement to the Scottish Parliament today.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said “I appreciate that today’s decisions will feel like a mixed bag. That reflects the fact that we are in a transition phase.
“No part of the country is going backwards today. Before the vaccines, that would have been impossible on case numbers like this.
“But the vaccines are changing the game. And that means we can still be optimistic about our chances of much more normality over the summer and beyond.
“As always, all of us have a part to play in beating this virus back. So please, stick with it, and each other.”
For local authority areas in Level 2, the Scottish Government will be providing support to soft play and other closed sectors that had expected to open, or operate in a different way from 7 June.
Full details will be provided by the Cabinet Secretary for Finance tomorrow.
