This guidance has been developed in partnership by the Association of Scotland’s Self-Caterers, the Professional Association of Self-Caterers, and the Wales Tourism Alliance. It is supported by the Tourism Alliance, the Scottish Tourism Alliance and the Wales Association of Self-Catering Operators. 

Chief Executive of the Association of Scotland’s Self-Caterers, Fiona Campbell, said:

“These protocols will allow our sector to re-open to our guests while ensuring the health and safety of everyone involved during these difficult times.

“Getting our members back to work is essential for both the health and vitality of our sector but also for the Scottish economy, given that we generate £723million each year in revenue.

“As we gradually begin to ease lockdown restrictions, we need make sure that the correct balance of rules and freedoms is maintained and these protocols will form a key part in ensuring that balance.”
