  • Coronavirus: Helping in your community

    Created: 27/03/2020

    Only help if you are well

    We should all be staying at home and only going out for essential reasons to reduce the spread of coronavirus. Follow advice on nhsinform.scot/coronavirus. However, you can still provide essential support to people who cannot leave the house if you fulfil ALL of the conditions below:

    • You are well and have no symptoms of coronavirus (a new and continuous cough or high temperature)
    • Nobody else in your household has shown symptoms
    • You are under 70
    • You are not 28 weeks pregnant or more
    • You do not have any underlying health conditions (that means you are offered the flu jab on grounds of health each year) that make you vulnerable to Coronavirus

    Guidance for those at increased risk of severe illness from coronavirus can be found here.

    Read more on how you can provide essential support safely in your community.
