Scottish Government Daily Update 24th April 2021
This update from the Scottish Government directs businesses towards the most up to date information on COVID-19.
The Find Business Support website has details of support and guidance for businesses that have been affected by the pandemic.
Changes to COVID-19 restrictions come into effect from Monday (26 April). Hospitality venues such as cafés, pubs and restaurants can reopen, along with tourist accommodation. Non-essential retail outlets and close contact services such as beauty salons can also reopen, along with indoor attractions and public buildings such as galleries, museums and libraries.
All parts of the country will move to Level 3 and remaining travel restrictions within Scotland will be lifted and travel within the UK will be permitted for any purpose.
An Advice Card for everyone at work highlighting key ventilation practice has also been published.
A self-assessment tool is available to help workplaces evaluate the effectiveness of their COVID-19 control measures. While not mandatory, the tool is designed to provide assurances that all necessary mitigating measures are in place. A checklist can be downloaded as part of the tool.
The Scottish Government’s timetable for easing restrictions has been published. The timetable sets out how and when we plan to lift the current coronavirus restrictions over the coming weeks and months.
Safer workplace guidance is released on a sectoral basis and can be found here.
