Scotland drops more restrictions

28, February 2022

The country’s vaccine passport scheme will end on 28 February 2022, then all remaining legal restrictions, including the wearing of face coverings in retail, hospitality and public transport settings, will end on 21 March.

The Scottish government’s new strategy is based on three levels of threat from Covid – low, medium and high.  First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, said the current threat level was medium, but she expected it to be reduced to low in the period ahead.

A recap of restrictions can be found here:

  • Those who test positive are required to isolate for seven days following two lateral flow tests.
  • Lateral flow tests will continue to be free.
  • There is a link to the compliance toolkit which businesses and workplaces should utilise to support their risk management.
