EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations are made in response to the serious and imminent threat to public health which is posed by the incidence and spread of coronavirus in Scotland.

These Regulations make amendments to the Health Protection (Coronavirus) (International Travel) (Scotland) Regulations 2020 (“the Principal Regulations”). Regulation 2 amends regulations 3, 6, 7, and certain paragraphs of schedule 2, to fix incorrect cross-references and make other minor amendments.

Regulation 6 of the Principal Regulations places a requirement on travellers to remain in a specified place for a period of 14 days. Schedule 2 specifies persons who are exempt. These Regulations amend paragraph 8 of schedule 2 which was restricted to seamen and masters who were required to commence work within 14 days of arrival in order to qualify for the exemption from regulation 6(2) of the Principal Regulations.

Regulation 3 disapplies the requirement in relation to seamen and masters who arrived in Scotland between the 8 June 2020 and the date that these Regulations come into force in respect of seamen and masters to whom that requirement applied on their arrival.
