Covid-19: Helpful links

22 March 2021

It has been a long and difficult journey since we first went into lockdown this time a year ago.

The evidence shows that the restrictions imposed at Christmas have helped to reduce Covid-19 case numbers, but this was only possible thanks to people adhering to the protective measures. To protect progress, the Scottish Government have stated that reopening of society and the economy will be cautious and gradual and informed by the latest evidence and data, not by dates. So, for the time being the message is to continue to be cautious, careful, and patient.

"Though difficult and trying days still lie ahead, better times are now in sight. Let’s stick with it and build a better future, together."

Nicola Sturgeon MSP, First Minister of Scotland from SG Coronavirus Strategic Framework

For now, the 'Stay at home' measures remain in place in mainland Scotland with a review proposed every few weeks.
