What you need to know
All covid rules and restrictions have been lifted in Scotland, but the virus has not gone away.
Use 'Covid sense' to help protect yourself and others:
- get your vaccine when offered to ensure you are fully protected. A drop-in vaccination clinic currently operates in the St John's Centre in Perth. Please visit the NHS Tayside website for more information.
- open windows when socialising indoors
- wear a face covering in indoor public places and on public transport
- wash your hands to protect yourself
Full information on the latest guidance is available on the Scottish Government website.
From 1 May 2022, the need to get tested if you display symptoms of Coronavirus ended. Instead, people are advised to stay at home until they feel better.
