Reopening of cultural performances and events guidance from the Scottish Government

24 Aug 2021


As Scotland moves beyond level zero, the Scottish Government has published the guidance around the range of precautionary measures still in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 at cultural performances and events.

The Scottish Government has put in place a range of precautionary measures, intended to reduce the spread of the virus and help us maintain the good progress we have already made as we move forward to greater normality. Although some precautionary measures will remain as legal requirements, others will be encouraged alongside good practice to create safer conditions for everyone. The precautionary measures are set out in full here.

As Scotland moves beyond Level 0, the Scottish Government will archive much of the sector-specific guidance it produced during the pandemic.  Instead, guidance will be published on key considerations that apply generally across work places and other settings. Detailed general guidance on safer workplaces, the precautionary mitigations, principles and good practice following the move beyond Level 0 is available. In addition, general guidance has also been published.

comprehensive list of all Scottish Government coronavirus guidance can be found on the Scottish Government website. website. This document provides an overview for how the culture sector can operate safely, highlights key issues that will be of particular relevance to the sector and indicates where other guidance can be found. It will be revised periodically to ensure it remains current.
