COVID-19 guidance

Find all the information you need about COVID-19 in Orkney.

Updated - 1/5/22

Visitors are welcome to travel to Orkney to enjoy our islands, and our community looks forward to seeing you all here.

Just like the rest of Scotland, Orkney has moved beyond COVID-19 restrictions, but we'd still ask any visitors to help keep our community as safe as possible, possibly by taking a test before travelling and continuing to follow protective measures, including wearing a face covering, maintaining physical distancing and washing or sanitising your hands regularly.

If you’re planning a visit to Orkney, we’d really appreciate it if you could make sure you’re familiar with all current guidance on preventing the spread of coronavirus.
