New guidance for customers

Nicola Sturgeon says all members of the public have a role to play in making sure that the reopening of shops can be carried out safely.

The first minister says the Scottish government is today publishing new guidance for customers. It states:

  • Some people should not be going to shops at all – those with Covid-19 symptoms and those in the shielding group
  • Shop locally and use the five-mile travel limit as a guide and not travel further than necessary
  • Shop on your own or in a small group as possible and avoid going at peak times
  • When you do go to a shop, wear a face covering unless you have a medical condition
  • Only visit shops that have infection control measures in place and use hand sanitisation
  • When shopping, remain patient and polite, and treat customers and staff with respect
