Coronavirus: Business advice

COVID-19 regulations

Throughout the coronavirus outbreak, our priority is to protect public health, while providing support and advice to businesses throughout Perth & Kinross. The council has enforcement powers under legislation which introduced new temporary restrictions to help reduce the spread of the virus.

View the The Health Protection (Coronavirus)(Restrictions and Requirements)(Local Levels)(Scotland) Regulations 2020 legislation.

As Perth & Kinross moves through the Protection Levels restrictions on businesses will change. Links to sectoral guidance and all the Scottish Government published guidance can be found on this page.

Collecting customer contact details

In all Protection Levels, relevant hospitality premises are required to collect the contact details of each visitor to their premises, this includes staff, customers and other visitors. This can be done in various ways depending on the ability of the business or the customer. The Scottish Government have launched the Check In Scotland service to assist businesses in collecting visitor details and to link in with Test & Protect.
