latest covid-19 guidance

The following guidance has been copied from the NHS Inform website.


Stay at home guidance:

The guidance on symptoms of respiratory infection, including COVID-19, has changed in Scotland.  If you have symptoms of a respiratory infection, such as COVID-19, and you have a high temperature or are too unwell to carry out normal activities, stay at home and avoid contact with other people, until you no longer have a high temperature (if you had one) or until you no longer feel unwell.


Children and young people aged 18 and under with mild symptoms such as a runny nose, sore throat or a slight cough, who are otherwise well, do not need to stay at home and can continue to attend education settings.  


Children and young people should only stay at home if they are unwell and have a high temperature.  They can go back to school and resume normal activities when they no longer have a fever and they feel well enough to attend.  


This NHS guidance was last updated in August 2023 and is subject to change.  Please visit NHS Inform for further information.
