To stay safe and protect others we must minimise the opportunity for Coronavirus (COVID-19) to spread from one person to another.
Information on how to stay safe and help prevent the spread of COVID-19 has been published which provides further detail on the principles we should all follow to help us keep each other safe.
The public use of face coverings guidance includes advice on the use of face coverings. There are also details of how to request a face covering exemption card. Carers do not have to wear a face covering if it causes distress or anxiety for the person they are caring for.

Carers and those they look after can travel together, even if they don’t live together, but they should follow the safe travel guidance at the Transport Scotland website, which provides advice on how to share vehicles safely.
