First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has announced a series of measures for Scotland to slow the spread of COVID-19.
As part of the Scottish Government’s strategy:
– People are being asked to reduce social interaction to a maximum of three households at any time, with everyone encouraged to take a lateral flow test before meeting.
– Businesses and service providers are being asked to take all reasonable measures to avoid crowding, encourage the wearing of face coverings and support distancing in their premises.
– People who can work from home should do so – but for sectors such as personal care where this is not possible, regular testing with lateral flow tests should be undertaken.
We are working with the Scottish Government to clarify what some of these measures mean for our sector and will update you with guidance and information when it is published.
