You will be aware that the Scottish Government has placed Perth and Kinross in Level 2 of its Strategic Framework, while Dundee is in Level 3. We know that some of you may live in Dundee or other Level 3 areas and be wondering what impact this may have on your work.

Homeworking has been a crucial factor in mitigating the transmission of the virus amongst the general population. Until it is deemed safe for workplaces to reopen, working from home and working flexibly will remain the default for those who can.

Where homeworking is not possible, your line manager may be able to help you travel at less busy times through staggered start times and flexible working patterns.

I live in a Level 3 area but work in Perth and Kinross. What should I do?

The default position remains that anyone who can work from home should continue to do so. If it is essential that you travel to another area for work then you can do so. Avoid car sharing where possible and, if you have to use public transport, wear a face covering unless you are exempt.

If you have any questions about you work or travel arrangements, please speak to your line manager in the first instance.
