Public Health Scotland has developed a community surveillance programme for acute respiratory infections in Scotland.

We collect information and samples from people in the community who have acute symptoms of respiratory infection. 

This allows us to monitor how much infection within the community is due to different respiratory viruses, including COVID-19. 

If you are a patient who has been asked to join this programme, find out more about information for recruited patients.

If you are a clinician, find out more about information for clinicians.
