Extra police officers will be on the streets in Aberdeen to ensure residents comply with the reintroduced lockdown rules.
First minister Nicola Sturgeon announced the tightening of restrictions across the Aberdeen City Council area following a “significant outbreak” in cases.
Residents should not enter each other’s homes or travel more than five miles and bars, cafes and restaurants must close from 5pm on Wednesday.
Police Scotland deputy chief constable Will Kerr said: “It’s really important that people follow the instructions and guidance from the Scottish Government.
“To support that, we will have additional patrols in Aberdeen, where local restrictions have been reintroduced.
“Our approach to these local restrictions will reflect the consistent approach taken by Police Scotland since the outset of this pandemic, and our officers will continue to engage, educate and encourage people to comply, as we all support the public health efforts to stop the spread of the virus.”
