This week the First Minister updated the Scottish Parliament on the current situation. She confirmed the importance of regular testing and ventilation, as we have continued to emphasise for parishes. She also dealt with the issue of extending Vaccine Passports. The full details will be confirmed next week, but it looks likely that they will be extended to cinemas, theatres, and some hospitality venues.
The First Minister specifically said, however, that “exceptions would also be retained for worship, weddings, funerals and related gatherings.” Any extension of the scheme should not therefore affect us directly (although depending on the definition of “some hospitality venues” it may affect some activities in parish halls. I will update you should that occur).
There are no suggestions of further restrictions at the moment, but we see such things happening in other countries so we need to wait and see how things develop.
