COVID-19 09/08/21) – Update

A further update was provided by the First Minister on the 3rd of August 2021, confirming that all of Scotland will move “Beyond Level 0” on Monday 9th of August. Although restrictions are being eased it was also confirmed that the Scottish Government will retain the option of putting in place local measures and travel restrictions to manage any future virus outbreaks.

People who are symptomatic, including close contacts, should self-isolate for 10 days as per the NHS Scotland guidance. From the 9th of August, close contacts of 18 years of age or over who have been double vaccinated for more than 14 days or 5-17 year-olds, with no symptoms, will be able to take a PCR test and end self-isolation if the result is negative. No one who is self-isolating should attend a sports facility or activity.

For each sport, please find the up-to-date information HERE. SSS is working closely with our members, partners, Scottish Governing bodies, and sportscotland throughout this time to provide further guidance and information should things change.
