Reminder – Covid Guidelines

Anyone with Covid symptoms such as a new or persistent cough, fever or a change in or loss of taste or smell, needs to immediately self-isolate with their household and book a PCR test.

If, through routine testing, you have a positive lateral flow test result, even though you have no symptoms, you must do the same as if you have symptoms – that is to self-isolate with your household and arrange a PCR test.

To book a PCR test, visit and click on the box which reads ‘Self-referral for Covid test’, if you have symptoms.

Internet Safety

Message from Child Protection Scotland:

For your information we have collated links to resources on online safety which are relevant to keeping children safe online at this time.
