Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Scotland FAQs


RYA Scotland’s Covid -19 guidance has been withdrawn.

As of 21 March 2022 most of the remaining legal requirements in the Coronavirus regulations have been removed, specifically the:

  • requirement to collect and share visitor information
  • requirement to have regard to Scottish Government guidance about minimising risk of exposure to coronavirus on its premises
  • requirement to take reasonably practicable measures, as set out in the guidance, to minimise incidence and spread of coronavirus

By law, you must continue to wear a face covering in most indoor public spaces, unless you are exempt from doing so because of specific circumstances. This does not apply to indoor training such as shore based courses or training sessions, if the space being used is not publicly accessible.

The law on face coverings is due to end on 18 April 2022. 

As a result of the removal of most Coronavirus regulations, and the removal of guidance specifically for sport from sportscotland, RYA Scotland’s guidance has been withdrawn.

For general advice on helping to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we recommend following the guidance on how to stay safe published by the Scottish Government.
