We can all play our part in helping to stop the virus spiking in Fife. Here is a reminder of the key ways in which we can all help to suppress the virus.
- Keep mixing with others to a minimum
- Try to meet people outdoors wherever possible
- Continue to wear face coverings as it’s the law in Scotland
- Continue to test twice a week
Continue following safety behaviours, including:
- Opening windows and doors when meeting indoors
- Outdoor socialising is safest
- Everyone aged 18 or over in Scotland should now have received an invite
for their first COVID-19 vaccination appointment.
- However, many have still to come forward for their vaccine. It’s really important that all those eligible come forward as soon as possible and get both doses of the vaccine to ensure maximum protection from COVID-19
1 in 3 people with COVID-19 don’t show any symptoms.
- We need people in Scotland to take two tests every week, even if they are
fully vaccinated and don’t have symptoms.
- Test kits can be collected from community pharmacies and local test sites, or ordered online at nhsinform.scot/testing.
- Recording both positive and negative results allows us to track the
presence of the virus in our communities. Cases are rising in Scotland
- Even if we’re vaccinated, we can still get coronavirus and pass it on to others.
- It’s vital that even if we only have mild symptoms or asked to by the NHS, we self isolate immediately and book a test.
