Gov.Scot: Economy COVID-19 Communications Update Monday 2nd November 2020

This update from the Scottish Government directs businesses to the most up to date information on COVID-19 as we move forward with our economic response.

The Find Business Support website continues to provide details on the assistance available as well as information and advice on how businesses can restart safely through and out of lockdown.

At today’s media briefing the First Minister said that the Scottish Government is continuing to press the case for the more generous furlough scheme announced by the Prime Minister at the weekend to be made available to devolved administrations whenever it is needed.  The First Minister’s full speech is available here.

The Scottish Government’s Strategic Framework is now operational and the Scottish Government website has a postcode checker so people can enter their details and see the rules that apply in their area.

The UK Government has announced increases in support under the third instalment of the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme, with people receiving 80 per cent of average trading profits for November.  Grants will also be paid faster than previously planned.  Full details of the scheme are available here.

Safer workplace guidance is released on a sectoral basis and can be found here.  

Guidance for businesses looking to offer support for the ongoing effort to tackle the Covid-19 emergency can be found here.

The NHS Inform coronavirus webpage is the fastest way for people to get the latest health advice and information.

We hope that you will find this useful and share with your networks where appropriate.
