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 about the changes in COVID restrictions that were announced yesterday which mean that Fife, Angus and Perth and Kinross will move from level 2 to level 3 of the Strategic Framework from Friday.

She also gave an update on the latest figures from the National Records of Scotland which showed that between 2 - 8 November, 206 COVID related deaths were registered, an increase of 38 from the previous week.

Thousands of students in Scotland will be tested for coronavirus (COVID-19) under plans to allow those wishing to return home at the end of term to do so safely.  In a statement to Parliament, Further and Higher Education Minister Richard Lochhead outlined the measures being taken by colleges and universities to support the safe return of up to 80,000 students ahead of the winter break.  Further information is available here.
