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 this afternoon’s media briefing the First Minister reminded people that eleven local authorities areas are moving into protection level 4 of the Strategic Framework as of 6 pm.   She said that Scottish Government support is available for businesses that have been impacted by coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions. Full details of support can be found here and you can read the First Minister’s full statement here.

Guidance is available giving details of the businesses and workplaces that must close and those that can remain open at protection level 4.  

Further advice has also been published on travel rules and restrictions.

The Scottish Government’s Strategic Framework is now operational, you can find out exactly which coronavirus lockdown restrictions apply to you by using the Scottish Government's postcode checker.

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

Grants are available for businesses that are required by law to close or to significantly change operations as a result of COVID-19 restrictions. Find out who is eligible and how to apply here.
