Scottish government website - NEW MEASURES

We are all being asked to reduce social interaction in our homes and indoor public spaces to a maximum of three households at any time. Before meeting together, people are also being asked to take a lateral flow test. We are asked to stay at home as much as possible, both before and immediately after Christmas.

See the previous item below (dated 12th December) for advice on getting lateral flow testing kits.

Following the identification of a new variant of Covid-19, known as the omicron variant, the Scottish government has revised its advice to include the following, with immediate effect.

  • Work from home wherever possible.
  • Take frequent "Lateral Flow" device tests. More specifically, take one each and every time before you mix with others outside your household. The tests are freely available at local pharmacies or you can order them online here: Lateral Flow Tests
  • Wear a face covering in all indoor settings for food and retail, on public transport and in all communal spaces.
  • If you are eligible, get a Covid booster injection. You can book online: Vaccine Booking
  • Wash and sanitise your hands regularly.

This information was published on 9th August 2021 by Stirling Council.

With effect from Monday 9th August, Scotland has moved out of the system of pandemic restrictions (levels 0-4). It is still a legal requirement to wear face masks in most indoor, public spaces and on public transport. (Children under twelve years of age are exempt from this.) There is no longer any requirement for physical distancing and no limits on the numbers that can meet together. Regular hand-washing, keeping surfaces clean and ensuring good ventilation indoors are all sensible measures to continue. For full details of the continuing restrictions and guidance, click on the button below for the Scottish government website.
