Update To Scotland’s Route Map

17th August 2020

Scotland moved to Phase 3 of moving out of lockdown on 10 July, with changes being introduced in stages. On Friday 14th August, the Scottish Government published an updated version of the route map. All sections have been updated except gatherings and occasions and community and public services.
SCC would like to highlight the latest guidance and positioning from Scottish Government on a few key sectors that we understand that members are regularly raising with local chambers. 
Domestic cleaning
Previous restrictions have now been removed and there are now no restrictions on the number of households/premises that can be cleaned on a single day. While there are now no restrictions on the number of households/premises that can be cleaned on a single day, the guidance highlights the importance of following general best practice and government guidance, especially on physical distancing, shielding, and sectoral guidance around mitigations for infection, prevention and control.
As it stands, the indicative date for the reopening of indoor sport and leisure facilities including gyms is 14 September 2020, with physical distancing and enhanced hygiene measures in place. The Scottish Government will continue to review the situation to see if earlier reopening is possible, with the intention to provide a further update on 20 August 2020. In collaboration with the sector, they have been developing robust guidance and protocols that will allow necessary preparation for facilities to provide confidence for members and staff to return safely and hope to publish that shortly.
Outdoor Coaching
Can take place with a maximum of 15 people, including a coach/leader and participants from up to 4 other households (or extended households) in each session throughout the day as per the guidance.  The size of groups/households numbers that can be coached at any one time is currently being reviewed and an update and further details will be provided as soon as possible.
