Under the lockdown measures which have been reintroduced, people are being told not to travel to the city.

The First Minister confirmed "certain restrictions" will be put in place in Aberdeen city centre from today (5 August).

Nicola Sturgeon, speaking at the coronavirus briefing in Edinburgh, said a cluster of 54 coronavirus cases had been identified in Aberdeen, with more than 20 other pubs and restaurants thought to be involved.

Pubs and restaurants have been ordered to close by 5pm this afternoon, with the lockdown to last at least one week.

Among the restrictions is a five-mile travel rule and residents are being told not to enter each other's houses.

Golfers from outwith Aberdeen are also advised not to travel to the city to play golf until such times as restrictions ease again.

Spring football is a hard challenge, as the Alliance of American Football found out in 2019, not lasting a full season, either. In a statement, Johnson, 48, provided a glimpse of the McMahon-like flair he could bring to the league.

Local lockdowns can be imposed when the Government fears spikes are likely to occur, and so Aberdeen has had lockdown rules reinstated.

Although visitors don't have to leave Aberdeen, they need to take "extra care" when they return home. Scotland has recorded almost 19,000 cases alongside England's 264,000 - almost 36,000 of which are in London alone.

"As I said earlier, this is about doing all we can to ensure our children can return to schools next week".

"It can happen here and it is happening here, in Aberdeen".

"This virus hasn't gone away - if you doubted that, then today we have evidence of how true that is", she added.

"The fact that the outbreak is no longer simply associated with one location, combined with the accelerating increase in cases means we can not rule out community transmission now being the case in Aberdeen".
