Face coverings in All Scottish courts and tribunals buildings

Sep 15, 2020

We are reminding all court and tribunal users to wear a face covering in public and communal areas of our buildings.

In line with existing guidance, we expect all those using our premises to continue to maintain 2m physical distancing. The introduction of face coverings is an addition to this safeguard – not a replacement for it. 

You will not need to wear a face covering if, under government guidance, you are exempt from doing so in other locations (such as in shops or on public transport).

We strongly advise court and tribunal users to wear face coverings when entering and leaving the building, while moving from one part of the building to another, or while waiting in communal areas such as reception points, witness rooms or outside a courtroom.

Full guidance for anyone attending our courts and tribunal buildings at this time is provided at Guidance for Courts and Tribunals Users during Coronavirus.
