Travelling to/from a place of worship
Travel to lead an act of worship or attend your usual place of worship is allowed, including if you need to cross local authority boundaries to attend your usual place of worship. The travel restrictions which are in place to suppress the spread of COVID-19 let you leave your home in a Level 4 area, and travel between areas in Levels 3 and 4, where you have a “reasonable excuse”. These include travel to:
- lead an act of worship
- attend your usual place of worship
Before travelling to a place of worship, individuals should consider whether this travel is necessary. It is important for everyone’s safety that we all minimise travel as much as possible.
Guidance on how and when to travel within Scotland is available. (The advice on physical distancing in this guidance also applies when travelling to and from a place of worship.)
