Coronavirus (COVID-19): Test and Protect
Test and Protect, Scotland’s approach to implementing the ‘test, trace, isolate, support strategy’, is a public health measure designed to break chains of transmission of COVID-19 in the community.
As part of this you will be asked to self-isolate at home for 10 days if you have symptoms of COVID-19 or you have tested positive for it. If you live with someone who has symptoms or has tested positive, or if you have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive, you will be asked to self-isolate at home for 14 days.
The symptoms of COVID-19 are new:
- continuous cough
- fever/high temperature (37.8C or greater)
- loss of, or change in, sense of smell or taste (anosmia)
Anyone with the symptoms of COVID-19 should go online to www.nhsinform.scot to book a test. If you cannot get online please call 0800 028 2816. You should self-isolate at home straight away along with other members of your household.
