Scottish Government Daily Update Monday 7th December 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 confirmed the 11 local authority areas which are currently in level 4 of the Strategic Framework would move out of that level on Friday. She said that what level will apply to these areas from Friday was under consideration today, with Cabinet making a decision tomorrow morning.

Wholesale food and drink businesses affected by COVID-19 are to be supported through a new £5 million fund. The fund will be targeted at food and drink wholesalers who sell to hospitality, on-trade or public sector clients who have seen sales fall by 20% or more since March.

Organisations who work to tackle violence against women and girls are being invited to apply for a share of up to £13 million in response to the pandemic. The funding is intended to help them develop and further their vital work over the next three years. More information is available here.
