Food Standards Scotland have updated its guidance for food business operators (FBOs) and their employees on 11 August. It aims to assist all businesses in the food and drink sector in following government guidance on infection prevention and control measures against COVID-19. It has been produced with input from the food industry and Trade Unions and reflects the most up to date advice from Scottish and UK Government and Health Protection Scotland.

The update makes an amendment of section on take-aways to reflect the mandatory wearing of face coverings (as updated by Scottish Government on 7 August 2020) and also updates the section on face shields/visors to take account of new evidence.
