Phase 3 of the Covid Route Map out of Lockdown

Published: Friday, 31 July 2020

The Scottish Government has issued new guidance in line with its route map through and out of the Covid crisis.

You may meet outdoors with members of up to four other households at a time for exercise or activity.

This means that events such as organised races, walking club trips and cycle club rides that would involve people from more than five households are not permitted.

If meeting people from another household outdoors, you should meet only in small groups - no more than 15 people in total at a time, and you should not meet people from more than four other households each day. 

Use your judgement and only take part in an activity if you can do so safely, maintain physical distancing and not put yourself or others at risk.

Plan in advance and do not take unnecessary risks that may result in the need for medical care or emergency services support. You should also consult the safety guidance for each individual activity before taking part. This can be found on the sportscotland website.

When taking part in activity outside, where possible, avoid touching surfaces with your hands, sharing equipment and touching your mouth and face. Follow advice on the NHS Inform website about hygiene and wash your hands as soon as you get home.
