Scotland will take extra steps to curb the mixing of households as part of new measures being implemented across the U.K. to tackle the latest surge in coronavirus inflections.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon told the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh that the tightening of restrictions are broadly in line with the rest of the U.K., including closing pubs earlier and ensuring people work from home where possible.
