Covid 19 and Club re-opening
Government Update 10-Sept-2020

Coronavirus in Scotland: What are the latest lockdown rules? 
  • The Scottish government has paused the next set of changes to the lockdown rules in Scotland and toughened some existing measures.
  • The reopening of indoor soft play areas, theatres and live music venues has been delayed until at least 5 October, along with the resumption of indoor contact sports for those aged 12 and over.
  • The rules on meeting other people will be tightened from Monday.
  • So what are the current rules - and what else is going to change?
The rules on meeting people
  • From Monday 14 September, it will only be possible for a maximum of six people from two households to meet together - either indoors or outdoors.
  • This will apply in restaurants, pubs and beer gardens, as well as in people's homes and gardens.
  • There will also be exceptions for organised sports and places of worship, and for funerals, weddings and civil partnerships.
  • There will be no change to the rule which allows 20 people to attend these ceremonies, and the same limit will now apply to wakes and receptions in regulated venues like hotels.
  • People should still be following the 2m distancing rules when gathering together.
When could the next changes happen?
  • A number of other changes which had originally been planned for 14 September have now been pushed back to 5 October - and will depend on the outcome of a review on 1 October.
What can I go out and do?
  • Pubs, cafes and restaurants have reopened both indoor and outdoor spaces.
  • They can seek an exemption from the 2m distancing rule indoors but will have to warn customers that they are entering a 1m zone, produce revised seating plans, and take steps such as improving ventilation.
  • Guidance on physical distancing have to be followed, and customers have to provide their contact details.
  • However, it will soon become law that when moving around hospitality venues, customers will have to wear face coverings
