Covid Guidance Changes


The Covid passport scheme will end on 28 February, though the app will remain operational

The advice on using Lateral Flow Tests will change. The advice will be to test at least twice a week, particularly if you are going to a crowded place or mixing with someone who is clinically vulnerable.

Lateral Flow Tests will continue to be free and the Scottish government will keep making self isolation support payments to those eligible.


Face coverings will no longer be a legal requirement, but the government will still strongly recommend them in indoor public places and on public transport.

Businesses, places of worship and service providers will no longer be legally required to take Scottish government-advised measures. A legal requirement for contact tracing will also end.
