Update to Vaccine Certification Apps

Members should aware that the Scottish Government’s Covid Status App and Covid Check Verification App have been updated.

The Covid Status App (for individuals to show their Covid status) has been updated to add a domestic tab for use in Scotland. The Covid Check Verification App (used by businesses to check QR codes) has been updated so that if a venue scans the QR code only a green tick will be seen. The green tick will replace the dates of vaccination currently displayed on the app.

As a result, businesses should now update the customer COVID Check (verifier) App to ensure the QR code shows a green tick when scanned.

As a reminder, members of the public are required to show proof of vaccination to enter:

  • late night venues open after midnight with alcohol and music and dancing
  • unseated indoor live events, with more than 500 people in the audience
  • unseated outdoor live events, with more than 4,000 people in the audience
  • any event, of any nature, which has more than 10,000 people in attendance
