Route map for easing lockdown restrictions

IMPORTANT UPDATE: The Scottish Government has announced local restrictions for Aberdeen City residents to control a COVID-19 outbreak.

Please visit our Local Coronavirus restrictions page for more information.


    What role will Aberdeen City Council have to play?   

    The focus of Aberdeen City Council’s Trading Standards and Environmental Health officers will be on providing information on restrictions for those businesses that cannot yet open and providing enforcement measures and information on new measures for those that can.  

    The Council is the main regulator for retail, wholesale distribution and warehousing, hotel and catering premises, offices, and the consumer/leisure industries, including the requirements of physical distancing on these premises.  More information can be found on the Trading Standards and Environmental Health pages.

    The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is the regulator for premises including manufacturing, construction, waste and sites subject to major hazards legislation. Enquiries about working safely to protect people from COVID-19 at work can be raised with HSE.
