Travel and Transport

The Scottish Government has issued a series of travel restrictions under the protection levels system. Some limited exemptions from the restrictions not to travel to or from other parts of the UK exist. These should not be seen as loopholes.

From Friday 16 April the COVID-19 restrictions on leaving your local authority area will end, with people being allowed to travel across Scotland freely, although overnight stays with other households are still not permitted.

Congregations should not run any ‘lifts to church’ schemes to collect people and bring them to worship. Equally, congregations should not put in place any schemes, or broker lifts between people for travel to appointments such as vaccination or hospital.
