This report was produced by the Data and Evidence subgroup of the Environment and Spaces for Public Health Partnership Group, previously the Social and System Recovery Environment and Spaces Group. The group, which is hosted by Public Health Scotland (PHS), was established to bring together evidence on how our responses to the COVID-19 pandemic have affected our environment and spaces and how people interact within these, articulate how this might impact people’s health and wellbeing, and use this to inform national and local responses to policy and practice.
