Test & Protect Resources

Guidance for the public, including a summary is available online along with guidance for employers.

Under Test and Protect, contact tracers will identify cases of COVID-19, contact the people they have been in close contact with, and then ask them to self-isolate for 14 days to reduce the risk of the virus spreading.

From Thursday, May 28, anyone with the symptoms of COVID-19 – a new continuous cough, temperature, loss or change in sense of taste or smell should go online to www.nhsinform.scot or call 0800 028 2816.

Those who need extra help can call the National Assistance Helpline on 0800 111 4000.  It is open Monday to Friday, from 9am-5pm. This helpline is dedicated to helping those who cannot leave their home and cannot get the help they need from family or friends or online.
