Scottish Government Daily update on COVID-19, Monday 23rd 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 confirmed that, as indicated last week, East Lothian will move down from level 3 to level 2 of the Strategic Framework from tomorrow, and that the majority of other local authority areas will remain in their current level. She also said plans for an expansion of testing will be set out on Wednesday. You can read the First Minister’s full statement here.

Finance Secretary Kate Forbes has called on the UK Government to prioritise public services and economic recovery through a fresh fiscal stimulus package of £98 billion, ahead of the Spending Review on Wednesday.

The food and drink sector is getting £5 million to help its recovery from coronavirus (COVID-19) and to prepare for Brexit. More information is available here.

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.
