In Glasgow, the host city for Euro 2020 would officially open its fans
zone today, Friday without COVID-19 temperature checks or mass testing
of participants.

Reports say despite criticism, no changes are being made to the
management of the Glasgow Green site.

The decision follows talks between Health Secretary Humza Yousaf,
clinical advisers and Glasgow City Council.
Up to 3,000 fans will be allowed at any one time, social distancing
will be enforced and alcohol can only be purchased via table service.
Health experts and hospitality leaders are among those who expressed
concern about plans to let thousands of people watch matches on large
screens.

But Mr Yousaf has described both the fan zone and the games at Hampden
as “low risk” events.
The tournament kicks off on Friday, with Glasgow one of 11 host cities.
Opposition MSPs have been pushing for those attending the fan zone to
be subject to further Covid measures such as mass testing or
temperature checks.
About 12,000 supporters will also gather in Hampden Park for four
matches this month, taking the national stadium to 25% capacity.
Wembley Stadium in London is requiring proof of vaccination or a
negative Covid test result for entry to the Euros matches it is
hosting.
