Older pupils and teachers will need to wear face masks in class in Glasgow under new guidance.

The new rules mean pupils in S4-S6 and their teachers will wear a face covering in classrooms as well as when moving around the school, in areas that are in level three, which is Glasgow, and level four from Monday.

The Scottish Government said face coverings should also be worn by parents and other visitors to any school site (whether entering the building or otherwise), including parents at drop-off and pick-up.

Deputy First Minister John Swinney said: “Keeping schools open remains our priority but that can only be the case if schools are safe. There have been tremendous efforts applied by staff and pupils to ensure this is the case and I thank them all for their efforts.

“From Monday, there will be increased use of face coverings and new advice to help protect those in the shielding category.  

“It is vital that all the measures are followed rigorously in schools. Doing that – together with the collective efforts of all of us across wider society ­– will help to ensure that schools can safely remain open.”
