From tomorrow wearing a visor alone will not be permitted in Scotland. instead a face covering must also be worn.
During her statement this afternoon, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said the change to rules was based on the latest scientific evidence.
She said: “We are not convinced a face visor on it’s own provides sufficient protection for the wearer or to others.
“So from tomorrow if a visor is worn it must be accompanied by another type of face covering.”
Meanwhile, Ms Sturgeon praised the majority of businesses for complying with the measures set out to protect staff and customers, however, she made it clear she was aware some were not complying.
Because of this, new statutory guidance will be issued to make it mandatory for hospitality businesses to collect customer information for track and trace.
Previously it had only been part of guidance issued to premises.
The First Minister also highlighted that people should be pre-booking and there should be no queuing unless absolutely necessary – in those cases it should be social distanced.
She added that customers should not be standing together, they must be seated, and people must not be queueing for bars, with food and drink instead delivered via table service.
There should also be no background music, and no volume from TVs to make sure people don’t have to shout over each other or lean in to be heard.
Speaking on the outbreak in Aberdeen, she confirmed there are now more than 100 cases linked to the outbreak in the city, with 313 close contacts identified, but Ms Sturgeon expects those numbers to continue to rise.
An additional 27 new cases have been detected in the city in the last 24 hours.
Dr Emmanuel Okpo, Consultant in Public Health Medicine, said: “I know the continuing increase in numbers will be concerning for the public. I must stress again they should only arrange a test if they have the recognised symptoms of Covid-19.
“A ‘not-detected’ result in someone without symptoms does not mean you will not go on to develop the virus. It does not mean you would not be required to self-isolate if you were identified as a close contact of a detected case.
“The advice to people across Grampian has not changed. Whether you live in Aberdeen or elsewhere, whether you attended any of the previously published venues or not, we need you to stick to the current guidance.
“Use a face covering where required, wash your hands thoroughly and regularly with water & soap, practise physical distancing, and avoid crowded places. It is especially important that people in Aberdeen abide by the current, enhanced, restrictions.
“Our health protection and Test & Protect teams are working extremely hard to speak to all the detected cases and establish who their close contacts are. Please be assured that if you are a close contact of a detected case, our teams will be in touch with you.
“I want to say thank you to all the people we have interviewed and contacted so far. Their cooperation and support, at what must be a difficult and concerning time for them, is recognised by all of us within NHS Grampian.”
