Coronavirus (COVID-19): Advice for Event Organisers

We are all subject to the on-going Government restrictions programme and understand the impact this is still having on event organisers and the difficult circumstances that arise as a result.  The Council has to adhere to the current restrictions on public gatherings. Scotland has now moved beyond the protection levels system. 

The Health Protection (Coronavirus) (Requirements) (Scotland) Regulations 2021 were amended on the 1 October 2021 by the Health Protection (Coronavirus) (Requirements) (Scotland) Amendment (No 2) Regulations 2021 and the Capacity Dispensation requirement has been removed from the regulation so you no longer require one to operate.

However, this amendment introduced a new requirement for certain types of venue and for relevant events. This requirement is to ensure that persons attending at the specified places are fully vaccinated unless exempt.
