Keeping Yourself Safe During COVID-19


Steps to - Stay clean  Stay apart   Stay well

It is important that farmers and crofters take infection control seriously, think of this like Foot and Mouth disease for humans. Coronavirus impacts both rural and urban communities; farmers and crofters are not immune.


Protect your business, and your family by:

  • Self-isolate and book a test if you have COVID-19 symptoms,
  • Wear a face covering.  It is compulsory to wear a face covering in shops and public transport. 
  • Avoid crowded places, 
  • Stay 2m apart from other people, 
  • Clean hands and surfaces regularly,
  • Check what you can and cannot do using Scottish Government Guidance, available here,
  • You can also download the Protect Scotland Contract Tracing App here.


On the farm you can:

  • Arrange designated drop off points for all on farm/croft deliveries,
  • Reduce all other on-farm/croft meetings, including those with contractors, to the minimum, 
  • Where possible, do not share machinery with other farms, where it is unavoidable ensure it is thoroughly disinfected


Help others in the farming community by respecting the above and:

  • Call your farming/crofting neighbours check in on them, particularly if they are elderly or vulnerable
  • If you are needed to help a neighbour, remember the advice above about keeping yourself safe
