First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced a package worth £375 million in business support to mitigate the impact of public health measures introduced to limit the rapid spread of the Omicron variant. Extra funding has since been announced in the Scottish Budget to help recovery.
The Scottish Government have been administering payments worth up to £28.8 million to the tourism and events industry as part of the £375 million package.
The funding included up to £9 million for tourism and £19.8 million for events.
The money is designed to recognise the economic impact of the steps people were asked to take from early December and the restrictions in place affecting some sectors since then.
