Most of the remaining legal requirements in the Coronavirus regulations were removed today (21 March), specifically requirements for workplaces to:
- collect and share visitor information;
- have regard to Scottish Government guidance about minimising risk of exposure to COVID-19 on its premises;
- take reasonably practicable measures, as set out in the guidance, to minimise incidence and spread of COVID-19.
Guidance for businesses and workplaces on reducing the risk of COVID-19 and supporting staff and customers has been updated to reflect these changes.
A toolkit to assist businesses is available here, a further toolkit for event organisers and businesses who are continuing with the option to check COVID status is available here.
By law, people must continue to wear a face covering in most indoor public spaces, unless exempt from doing so because of specific circumstances. This will be reviewed on 29 March and any changes implemented from 4 April.
