Coronavirus: Protect Yourself
Latest guidance about COVID-19 from NHS Scotland and the Scottish Government, including social distancing and stay at home advice can be found at http://nhsinform.scot/coronavirus. You can also read the Moray Council's guidance on social distancing.
If you’ve developed a new continuous cough and/or a fever/high temperature in the last 7 days, stay at home for 10 days from the start of your symptoms even if you think your symptoms are mild. Do not go to your GP, pharmacy or hospital.Self-isolation guidance has been updated as of 6 January 2022 and further information is available here as to what these may mean for you if you test positive for Covid or if you are a close contact.
You should only phone 111 if your symptoms:
- have not improved after 7 days
- are severe or you have shortness of breath
- worsen during home isolation.
You should also phone 111 if you develop breathlessness or it worsens, especially if you:
- are 70 years old or over
- have underlying poor health
- have heart or lung problems
- have a weakened immune system, including cancer
- have diabetes
If you have a medical emergency, phone 999 and tell them you have COVID-19 symptoms.
Track and Trace - HQ Campus
A new Track and Trace eform has been introduced for recording Visitors to the HQ Campus. This form should also be used by staff who have forgotten or misplaced their swipe card so we have a record of personnel on site should this information be required by the Public Health Scotland Track and Trace.
Simple steps, such as washing hands thoroughly, coughing and sneezing into tissues and binning tissues are all important things we can incorporate into our day-to-day lives.
After reviewing the current advice from the Scottish Government Team Brief 194 has been released with updated advice for staff.
To escape the misinformation about the virus out there, we recommend reading the guidance published by the NHS.
A description of the virus, symptoms, details of category 1 and category 2 areas and what to do if you’ve travelled through these areas, is available on the NHS inform website.
The hub is Grampian wide and offers advice and information for anyone affected by coronavirus including the option to offer assistance or request help.
