New rules for Scotland
On Monday 24 August the Covid-19 restrictions in Scotland changed.
As a nation we are ‘beyond zero’ which means that we have moved out of the Levels system. While the vaccination programme and Test & Protect have helped to reduce the number of cases, we must all continue to follow the rules and reduce the risks. You should still do the following:
- Wear a face mask in indoor public places
- Download the Test & Protect app
- Follow FACTS
- Book a PCR test if you start to experience any symptoms of Covid-19
You should also continue to carry out home working as much as possible.
For more information about the new rules and what they mean for you. Click here.
Guidance for staff:
If you experience any of the Covid-19 symptoms (see below) then you should immediately self-isolate for 10 days and book a PCR test. Anyone in your household should also self-isolate for the 10 day period.
If your symptoms worsen during self-isolation or you feel no better after 10 days, call NHS24 (111).
You can return to work after the 10 day isolation period if your health has improved.
Common Covid-19 symptoms:
- high temperature or fever and/or
- new continuous cough
- recent shortness of breath
- loss of taste or smell
A free-phone helpline is available if you do not have symptoms but need general advice: 0800 028 2816
