Coronavirus (COVID-19) information and resources

COVID-19 (Update 13 April 2022)

COVID-19 is still a public health risk. You can catch it even if you’ve been vaccinated or had it before.

By continuing to care for ourselves and others, we can help slow down the spread of the virus, enable workplaces to operate safely and reduce pressure on health services.

As of 21 March 2022 most of the remaining legal requirements in the Coronavirus regulations have been removed, specifically the:

  • requirement to collect and share visitor information
  • requirement to have regard to Scottish Government guidance about minimising risk of exposure to coronavirus on its premises
  • requirement to take reasonably practicable measures, as set out in the guidance, to minimise incidence and spread of coronavirus

By law, you must continue to wear a face covering in most indoor public spaces, unless you are exempt from doing so because of specific circumstances. This legal requirement is due to be converted into guidance on 18 April 2022.

As a result of the removal of most Coronavirus regulations, sportscotland’s return to sport and physical guidance has been withdrawn.

For general advice on helping to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we recommend following the rules and guidance on how to stay safe published by the Scottish Government.

To assist sports organisations to operate safely we are continuing to make our previous advice pages documents accessible as archived documents. While much of the content remains good practice, these pages and documents are no longer being updated and are not intended to reflect or provide advice on current legal restrictions.
