The gathering of contact information from council employees and visitors to council premises, in a secure and safe manner, will assist NHS Scotland’s Test and Protect service to identify and contact individuals who may have been exposed to the virus, and request them to take appropriate steps to prevent the potential onward spread of the virus.
Containing outbreaks early is crucial to reduce the spread of COVID-19, protect the NHS and save lives, and avoid the reintroduction of lockdown. This will support the country to return to, and maintain, a more normal way of life.
Managers can play a significant role in helping staff and visitors to understand the value of NHS Scotland’s Test and Protect service, and the importance of playing their part to identify people who may have been in contact with the virus.
As a manager please ensure you follow and put in place the below protocol for your employees and any visitors you have to the buildings and sites you manage/are responsible for.
