Covid 19: Shielding support and contacts

The following guidance was issued by the Scottish Government on 3rd April 2020. It sets out the groups of people that are considered at greatest risk if they contract Covid 19 and explains what support can be provided to help them to be shielded from the virus.  The guidance includes contact numbers for each local authority as well as details about the SMS system that can be used on mobile phones to help maintain contact and organise free food parcels as necessary.
