    this will be interesting test of their resolve in Scotland. they about double the rate than England, and have the power to bring in mask and other mandates if they wish. so they can go ahead and legislate.
    The English know how to make the best of things. Their so-called muddling through is simply skill at dealing with the inevitable.

      One hopes that any such return to compulsion would be accompanied by details statisitcs about why it's a good thing, why it works, showing comparisons with (say) England which has had far less stringent rules with little apparant difference in the numbers.

      If they want to introduce mask wearing because it's a good thing that saves lives, that's fine if justified. If they want to do it just because they think they ought to do something and have no other ideas, I'd be less than impressed.

      I don't think they can. The temporary provision covered by the covonavirus act 2020 expired on 25th March 2022.

      Any legislation brought in would have to go through a full act of parliament procedure.

      At least in England
      Would have to go through parliament again, although I don't see it happening.
