Coronavirus in Scotland

Stay safe, protect others, save lives.

Scotland moved to Phase 3 of the route map for coming out of lockdown on the 10 July 2020. See some key dates for future changes.

You should:

  • wear a face covering
  • avoid crowded places
  • clean hands and surfaces regularly
  • stay 2m away from other people
  • self-isolate and book a test if you have COVID-19 symptoms

See what you can and cannot do to help suppress the virus.

Everyone who can do their job from home must continue to do so and services which cannot be delivered remotely or in line with recent Scottish Government Guidelines may remain reduced or temporarily stood down 

Staff should only be travelling to a place of work (outside the home) where they have a specific role or task to deliver which cannot be done from home and is in support of one of our defined critical services, or where the service has been reinstated in line with Government Guidelines.

If a member of staff is not delivering one of these services and their role cannot be done from home service managers may need to stand down the service in discussion with their Chief Officer and the staff member(s) should go home. If they can perform another task from home, prioritising but not restricted to work on the critical list, or if they are needed for an alternative critical service they should be asked to do so through the line management structure, or by signing up to the temporary movement scheme.

Managers can use this decision tree to support them in determining if someone who be attending work

Any staff that are travelling to a place of work, or during work, should carry their ID badge with them.
