Further measures needed to reduce contacts

"Additional steps to slow spread of dominant Omicron variant will be reviewed after three weeks.

Due to the urgent threat posed by Omicron’s much higher transmissibility than other variants of coronavirus (COVID-19), additional targeted measures to minimise contacts will come into force for at least three weeks to allow immunity from the accelerated booster vaccine programme to take effect.

All measures will be reviewed after three weeks on Tuesday 11 January at which point protection from booster vaccinations up to 31 December - when the Scottish Government is aiming for 80% of over 18s to have received their booster - will be maximised."

From 24 January:

    there will be no limits on attendance at indoor public events
    there will be no requirement to have physical distancing between different groups in indoor public places
    hospitality premises no longer need to provide table service
    nightclubs can reopen
    non-professional indoor contact sports can resume
    guidance asking people to stick to a 3 household limit on indoor gatherings will be removed but we all should continue to keep gatherings as small as our circumstances allow for now - until the end of January

Meanwhile you should continue to follow the current guidance detailed in the sections below until these changes come into place. Please also:

    try to limit the number of contacts you would normally have and if you meet indoors limit the gathering to no more than 3 households until January 24
    avoid crowded places – shop at quieter times where possible and follow the enhanced precautions in shops and hospitality venues, which may include controlled entrances and exits to limit customer numbers, and signs and floor markings to help people keep a safe distance from others
    work from home if you can
    take

a lateral flow test before you visit someone in hospital or a care home or to accompany someone to medical appointments
