COVID 19 shielding user research survey wristband question supporting material: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002

Information requested

All supporting material that led to the inclusion of the question - “If you were offered something small to wear (such as a wristband) to indicate that you’d prefer people to keep their distance, would you use it?” in a recent survey for those on the higher risk list.

Including, but not limited to, research, emails, meeting minutes, public engagements and any previously considered versions of this question. This should include any considerations of adverse effects of the introduction of such an item.


I attach a copy of all of the information you requested.

Some information has been redacted, in line with Section 38(1)(a) of FOISA, since its release would otherwise disclose personal data relating to a third party. Redaction of that information is not subject to the public interest test.
