First Minister's Statement to Parliament - 30th March 2022 - Perthshire Chamber of Commerce

First Minister's Statement to Parliament - 30th March 2022

Today the First Minister delivered a statement to parliament and gave an update on changes to COVID-19 regulations.

From Monday (4 April) the legal requirement to wear a face covering in places of worship or while attending a marriage ceremony, civil partnership registration, funeral or commemorative event will end.

The requirement to wear face coverings in other indoor areas such as retail spaces and public transport will become guidance on 18 April, subject to the state of the pandemic.

The First Minister told Parliament that the very high level of infection and ongoing pressure within the NHS had been taken into account when making the decision, and that data will continue to be assessed closely.
