This is a joint publication between Public Health Scotland and Antimicrobial Resistance and Healthcare Associated Infection (ARHAI) Scotland, part of NHS National Services Scotland.​

This guidance is to support those working in social, community and residential care settings to give advice to their staff and users of their services about COVID-19. It does not cover care home settings, as separate guidance is provided for care home settings.

Please note that the former ‘COVID-19 guidance for domiciliary care’ has now been withdrawn and relevant information from this guidance has been incorporated in to the ‘COVID-19: Information and Guidance for Social, Community and Residential Care Settings’.

The Scottish COVID-19 Community Health and Care Settings Infection Prevention and Control Addendum is available on the National Infection Prevention and Control website (external website).
