Question ref. S6W-06338
Asked by: Rona Mackay, Strathkelvin and Bearsden, Scottish National Party
Date lodged: 4 February 2022
To ask the Scottish Government what the outcome is of its latest review into border health measures, and whether there will be any changes to the regulations.
Current status: Answered by Michael Matheson on 7 February 2022
We have reviewed the border health measures closely over the last 28 days and have assessed that there continues to be a requirement for the regulations to remain in place to reduce the risk of imported transmission and safeguard public health in Scotland. The regulations continue to be an important and proportionate part of the Scottish Government response to managing the pandemic. As we have done throughout the pandemic, we will continue discussions with UK Government and the other devolved administrations and continue to seek to take a four-nations approach to future changes to regulations and the travel regime.
