Covid-19 – maintaining protection

While all pandemic restrictions have now been removed in Scotland, the virus has not gone away.
There remains a need to be vigilant and take sensible precautions to prevent the spread of the virus. This includes:

  • making sure you are up to date with your vaccinations
  • staying at home if you feel unwell and caring for yourself and others
  • maintaining good hand hygiene
  • wearing a face covering where appropriate
  • making sure indoor spaces are well ventilated

The latest advice can be found on the Scottish Government website.
