Scotland Covid19 Links

Introduction to NHS inform.scot

"Test and Protect is Scotland’s way of putting into practice the test, trace, isolate, support strategy.

It will prevent the spread of coronavirus in the community by:

  • identifying cases of coronavirus through testing
  • tracing the people who may have become infected by spending time in close contact with them
  • supporting those close contacts to self-isolate, so that if they have the virus they are less likely transmit it to others

Breaking the chains of transmission in the community will stop the virus spreading. This will allow us to gradually change the restrictions that help to suppress the virus."


"There are test centres across Scotland for people with and without symptoms. You can also get tests to do at home.

You can get a test for:

  • yourself
  • someone you care for
  • a child in your care"
