Welcome to EK, East Kilbride
The recent Scottish Government announcement that many of the remaining Covid restrictions will be lifted from 9th August is great news for communities across Scotland. While there is a relaxation of rules across the country, it is important to remember that masks are still compulsory in all indoor settings and we would ask our visitors to be mindful of this and other hygiene measures when they visit the centre.

Visitors must wear face coverings in all shared spaces, including on our malls and inside stores. To see the Scottish Government guidance on face coverings in retail settings (including certain exceptions), please visit www.gov.scot
PHYSICAL DISTANCING & ONE WAY SYSTEM
Whilst the legal requirement for physical distancing has been removed (as of 9th August), we have retained the one way system on our malls for now and ask that you please be mindful of others, particularly those who may take a little longer to become more comfortable with the easing of restrictions. Some of our stores may continue to operate a one way system. Please contact individual stores for details on their company policies.
When using our customer lifts, we ask that you please give consideration to others and use the stairs if possible.
TOILETS & BABY CHANGE FACILITIES
All customer toilets are now open. Please ask a member of our mall staff if you require assistance.
Our team are cleaning all touch points regularly and we recommend that you use the hand sanitising stations which are available throughout the mall.
In line with the easing of restrictions, all customer seating has now been reinstated throughout our malls.
We will continue to monitor the advice of the Scottish Government with regards capacity limits and it may be necessary again in future to restrict access at entrances if the volume of customers exceeds the designated threshold.
STORE OPENING TIMES
Opening times for stores may vary. Our retailers will be operating in line with Scottish Government guidelines and their own company policies and we recommend that you check with stores or on their company websites for the latest details. See our Store Directory to search for a store and find their contact details.

We will continue to monitor these guidelines and communicate any changes to our position via our website and Facebook page.
