Going back to work, college and university from 26 April 2021
From 26 April, the Scottish Government expects that people on the shielding list who are currently at Level 4 will be able to return to the workplace, if they cannot work from home. College and university students and young people at school should also be able to return at this time.
This is because, from this date, all areas now in Level 4 should move down to Level 3 or lower. We'll let you know if this changes.
The criteria for moving up or down a level have been tightened in Scotland. This means that at Level 3 of the Scottish Government's updated strategic framework infection rates will be low enough to greatly reduce your risk of catching coronavirus.
You should continue to follow public health advice to protect yourself, even after you've had one or both doses of the vaccine.
