Keeping You Safe

COVID-19 measures

In line with Scottish Government guidelines, face coverings are mandatory at all times during the event, unless exempt or eating, drinking or dancing.

The Safety of our exhibitors, visitors, contractors and venue and organsing staff is of paramount importance.

Road Expo & Bridges Scotland have made the decision to implement COVID-19 status spot checks on arrival at the event (this will include visitors, exhibitors, contractors, venue and organising staff). Even though this is not currently mandated within government guidelines, as the evidence suggests this is the best way for us to reduce the risk of transmission within the event itself. Putting these spot checks in place adds an additional layer of reassurance for all attendees once they are inside the event.

If you are spot-checked you will need to demonstrate proof of COVID-19 status by providing one of the following:

If you are unable to provide the above then we will need:

  • Proof of a negative Lateral Flow Test result taken within 24hrs of arrival. Register the result of the test by following this link https://www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result. Please bring proof of your negative test result with you to the event. We will not accept the physical test or a photo of the test.
  • Proof of completion of a full course of vaccination 14 days (2 weeks) prior to arrival via the NHS Scotland COVID Status App, the NHS App or equivalent for internationals. Please note we will not accept the vaccination card.

If you are unable to provide the above then we will need:

  • Proof of natural immunity based upon a positive PCR test within 180 days of the event (including 10 days self-isolation following the result).

 

You will find further details on how to prove your COVID status and FAQ here.

If you or your colleagues are spot-checked and you are unable to show proof of one of the above, we will ask you to carry out a LFT onsite outside of the venue prior to entry.

Once you have verified your COVID-19 status you will gain access to Road Expo & Bridges Scotland.
