Previous guidance on self-isolation has now been withdrawn. The nhsinform.scot website has been updated as follows:
From 1 May, most people no longer need to take a coronavirus test and should follow guidance on staying at home if unwell.
Stay at home and avoid contact with other people if you:
Do this until you no longer have a high temperature (if you had one) or until you feel better.
Work from home if you can. If you can’t work from home, talk to your employer about your options.
Avoid close contact with anyone who is at higher risk, especially individuals with a weakened immune system.
If you’ve been asked to attend a medical or dental appointment in person, tell them about your symptoms.
You may wish to ask friends, family or neighbours to get food and other essentials for you.
You should tell people you have recently been in contact with that you’re feeling unwell. This means they can be aware of signs or symptoms.
