At a recent meeting between representatives of the Scottish district’s public affairs committee and the Scottish government’s retail minister Tom Arthur MSP, the minister urged retailers to help stem the tide of coronavirus cases by continuing to follow the safety measures in place.

 

The number of Covid cases in Scotland has soared of late, and the government is asking everyone to follow the guidance and continue to obey the law on the wearing of face coverings in shops and other public places.

 

Kate Forbes, cabinet secretary for finance and the economy, said: “Since the start of the pandemic, businesses have made huge changes and sacrifices to protect public health. I’m incredibly grateful to the business community and would like to thank everyone who has spent time and effort to make their businesses as safe as possible for customers and staff. Your contribution has been vital in helping us control the spread of the virus.

 

“Businesses have shown great leadership throughout the pandemic in encouraging adherence with mitigations and we would ask that this continues at this fragile time. I would urge customers to follow the guidance, too, to support the businesses they use.”
