Scottish Government advise that in order to slow the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) the general public are being asked to stay at home as much as possible and avoid unnecessary social contact.
particularly important for people over 70 and those who have high risk and underlying health conditions are being strongly advised to stay at home as much as possible and significantly reduce unnecessary social contact.
The advice is that people should:
minimise social contact by avoiding crowded areas and large gatherings, including religious congregations and smaller gatherings such as restaurants, pubs, bars, clubs, cinemas and gyms. -avoid using public transport as much as possible. -follow the latest
health and travel advice, and follow basic hygiene precautions, such as washing hands frequently, not touching their face and covering their nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. These measures, according to the government, will delay
the spread of the epidemic so that the NHS can cope with demand and save lives.
These measures will be kept under constant review as
they try to slow down the spread of the infection.
