We are open and supporting service users through the current pandemic. Read on for further information on COVID-19


Generally, coronavirus can cause severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long term conditions like diabetes, cancer, and chronic lung disease.


The most common symptoms are a new:

  • Continuous cough
  • Fever/high temperature (37.8C or greater)

Some people will have more serious symptoms, including pneumonia or difficulty breathing, which might require admission to hospital.


If you have developed symptoms (however mild) in the last 7 days, stay at home for 7 days from the start of your symptoms and arrange to be tested. Do not go to your GP, pharmacy, or hospital.


You should remain at home until you get the result of the test, and then follow the advice you will be given on the result.


People can become infected when droplets land directly on them or they touch contaminated objects and surfaced. That is why good respiratory hygiene and hand washing are so important.

The virus might also spread by people 2 days before developing symptoms or by those who don’t develop symptoms at all.


You can reduce your risk of getting and spreading the infection by:

  • Avoiding direct hand contact with your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Maintaining good hand hygiene.
  • Avoiding direct contact with people that have a respiratory illness and avoid using their personal items such as their mobile phone.
  • Covering your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing with disposable tissues and disposing of them in the nearest waste bin after use.
  • Following the guidance for households with possible coronavirus infection if someone in your household has symptoms.
  • Making sure everyone in the household follows the Scottish Government’s Coronavirus advice as much as possible and to stay away from other people.
  • Making sure everyone in your household follows the physical distancing advice, especially anyone in a vulnerable group.
  • Helping those at extremely high risk of severe illness with coronavirus to follow the shielding advice.
  • You can’t catch coronavirus from food, but it is possible to catch it if you touch an infected surface or object and then touch your mouth or nose.

Wash your hands regularly

Wash your hands with soap and water or alcohol hand sanitiser before eating and drinking, and after coughing, sneezing, and going to the toilet.
