The Scottish Government has published its updates on retail guidance, social distancing and the mandatory wearing of face coverings.

Retail Guidance: (retail posters are also available for download under the 'supporting files' tab on the right-hand side under the DOWNLOAD button)

Face Coverings:

Legal Text:

Regarding face coverings in wholesale, the guidance states: “Retail settings which are included/excluded from the mandatory measure: the guidance will apply in indoor shopping malls including those with covered walkways, retail service settings such as hairdressers, barbers and in wholesale settings where members of the public are present. It is also strongly recommended that face coverings are worn in public toilets in retail environments.

“The mandatory requirement to wear a face covering does not extend to trade customers in, for example, wholesale retail. High street financial services are also exempt from this measure although we still strongly recommend that face coverings form part of a risk assessment in these settings.”
