Foreign travel advice and country updates are available from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office website.

Following clear advice from the Chief Medical Officer and Scottish Government, you should remain at your current college or university accommodation.  Do not attempt to travel home or to relatives, even if they are in another part of Scotland. 

Whether you are living in student halls, or private rented accommodation, you should remain there and not travel unless for food, health or essential work.

If, however, you are symptom-free and have an essential journey to make using public transport in Scotland, then please remember to check online for any changes or restrictions to the type of transport you are planning to use. The Traveline Scotland website is useful for planning your journey by any mode of public transport, however you should also check the website of the individual public transport operator for the most up-to-date information on any timetable changes or travel restrictions.
