The latest guidance and information received from the Scottish Government has been added to the Covid-19 Updates tab on the blog.
Settings can begin applying the new guidance from Monday 5th July. To allow time for planning and staff training and, if this is preferred, to allow settings to make changes gradually, settings will have a further 14 days to move to the new guidance. This means that by Monday 19th July all ELC settings should be following the new guidance. On this date the current guidance on the Scottish Government website will be replaced by this new guidance.
Settings that operate over term-time only and are closed in July should apply the new guidance when they reopen in August.
The current planning assumption for August is that settings will be in Level 0.
