Scottish Government has issued the following Guidance for the tourism and hospitality sector, including procedures for staff and customer safety and an operations checklist.
These questions and answers are aimed at providing further clarity to sector businesses following publication of Scottish Government sectoral guidance, and subsequent statutory guidance and additional measures for the hospitality sector, including those as a result of Scotland’s Strategic Framework. It is not separate to government guidance but designed to complement it and further the understanding of what businesses need to consider and do to ensure they are operating safely and within the legal requirements.
As we move through Scotland’sRoute Map, guidance is having to be regularly reviewed and updated. Government does not want to keep restrictions in place a moment longer than is necessary, but safety must come first. Businesses are therefore requested to maintain the excellent work that has been undertaken so far and to continue working with authorities to build on that progress.
We have prepared this in cooperation with Environmental Health Officers and industry. It will be updated as more information becomes available.
