Local authorities and partner agencies across Scotland - including Dundee City Council - are well-prepared to handle the outbreak of a communicable disease like coronavirus. 

You have a vital role to play in helping us contain any outbreak by following the latest health and travel advice. Follow basic hygiene precautions, such as washing your hands frequently, not touching your face and covering your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. This video provides further hand washing advice.

We should all be trying to reduce social interaction between people in order to reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). Read more on the NHS Inform website.

Following a meeting of the UK Government’s COBR committee on Monday 23rd March, an effective ban is in place on gatherings in public places, excluding household groups or in a work-related capacity. Read more on the Scottish Government's website.
