We know these are tough times. But to help save lives and protect the ones we love, we need you to stop your kids’, and teens’ meeting up with others. If your house is symptom free, you can get active outside once a day, as long as you stay two metres from others. Safe ways include going for a local walk. Or indoors, try things like dancing, treasures hunts or hide ‘n’ seek It’s not easy, but to help save lives, stay home. For more ideas to stay active visit parentclub.scot/coronavirus



The single most important action we can all take, in fighting coronavirus, is to stay at home in order to protect the NHS and save lives.

When we reduce our day-to-day contact with other people, we will reduce the spread of the infection.

That is why we have introduced three new measures:

  • requiring people to stay at home, except for very limited purposes
  • closing certain business and venues
  • stopping all gatherings of more than two people in public

Every person in Scotland must comply with these new measures, which came into effect on 23 March 2020.

The relevant authorities, including the police, have been given the powers to enforce them – including through fines and dispersing gatherings.

These measures are in force for 6 months in the first instance, unless all, or parts are revoked.

They will initially last for the 3 weeks from 27 March 2020, at which point we will review and relax them if the evidence shows this is possible.
