Scottish Government Daily Wednesday 2nd 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.

Today the First Minister gave a statement to Parliament where she confirmed there will be no changes to COVID-19 protection levels following today’s weekly review.

The First Minister said Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire are being monitored closely after cases in both local authority areas increased sharply in the last week.

Recognising the challenging circumstances for employers and young people as a result of COVID-19, more businesses will be able to access financial support to help them take on young people through the new £15 million Apprenticeship Employer Grant. More information is available here.

An operational checklist has been added to the guidance for laboratories and research facilities.

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.
