Distance scheme launched
FREE badges and lanyards will be available to people who wish to maintain distance from others.
The Scottish Government has joined the distance aware scheme, set up by the Bevan Commission, and adapted it following research which showed that 73 per cent of people on the highest risk list would like to alert others that they would like some extra space.
And the badges and lanyards are now available from all community and mobile libraries in Scotland, and will feature the easily recognisable shield symbol.
Health Secretary Humza Yousaf said: “We are beginning to adapt to living with Covid-19 but we know that, for some people who have been at a higher risk or feel anxious about going out in public, this is a big step.
“I hope this will help people feel more confident and comfortable to go about their daily lives.

“The shield symbol can be worn by anyone.”
