Still Game star Gavin Mitchell has teamed up with the Scottish Government to encourage bar and restaurant-goers to help call time on Covid-19.
The actor, who plays Boaby the Barman, stars in a new video for the Stick With It campaign, which encourages Scots to remember the integral part they have to play to ensure that the country continues to suppress the virus as lockdown eases.
The video opens with the Clansman’s landlord delivering the famous catchphrase ‘That’s Plenty!’ and gesturing for punters not to get too close as a reminder of the important physical distancing rules that must now be followed inside bars and restaurants.
Boaby stresses the importance of providing details for Test and Protect as well as ensuring people are meeting with no more than three households at a time.
Avoid crowded places
Clean hands and surfaces regularly
Two metre distance from others or 1 metre when in a 1 metre hospitality zone
Self-isolate and book a test if you’re showing any symptoms
Mitchell said: “It is the responsibility of us all to stick with it, and make sure we are following all of the guidelines we have been given to fight this horrible virus.
“The more we do now, the better it will be for us all, and Scotland’s future.”
Jason Leitch, National Clinical Director, said: “Now more than ever it is important that the people of Scotland continue to follow the guidelines set out to protect everyone.
“Things are not normal at present and should not feel normal. It is essential that people stay vigilant and follow the FACTS guidelines especially as measures begin to lift.”
“We have seen the impact coronavirus has had on the country and by failing to follow the rules we are at risk of stricter measures being re-introduced to protect the people of Scotland.”
The Stick With It campaign urges Scots to follow the guidance below to keep everyone safe:
- No more than three households should be meeting in venues at one time as one group
- Avoid crowding, and where that isn’t possible, ensure a zone of at least 1m physical distancing from those in different households
- Supply your contact details for Test & Protect
- Avoid singing and shouting – this increases the risk of transmission
- You should be seated, with table service, not standing, distancing or queuing
- Tables should be pre-booked in advance where possible
- Limit the number of hospitality settings you visit on one day
- Follow good hygiene practices and wash your hands regularly
- Pay attention to guidance and instructions from staff.
