COVID-19 protection levels

COVID-19 protection levels set out measures that can be applied nationally or locally depending on prevalence of the virus across Scotland. Please see Coronavirus Local Protection Levels guidance for up to date information and to check what level applies to your area.

Adult day centres can operate, in line with this guidance at protection levels 0 to 3.

At protection level 4, adult day centres can operate in line with this guidance, where they are essential for people’s wellbeing - i.e. where participants’ health (including their mental health) and wellbeing would be significantly impacted by non-attendance. As noted elsewhere in this guidance, services operating at reduced capacity should already be prioritising supported people and their unpaid carers who are most in need.

People who attend an adult day centre in a different local authority area from where they live can continue to do so, including where the day centre or person’s home is in protection level 3 or 4. Please see COVID-19 guidance on travel for further information on traveling safely, including the exceptions to restrictions on travelling into and out of protection level 3 and 4 areas.
