Coronavirus (COVID-19): Scotland's testing strategy - adapting to the pandemic

The Scottish Government's updated testing strategy, setting out the role testing continues to play in tackling coronavirus (COVID-19).


An errata was published on 8th September 2020 as a result of changes on PDF pages 11 and 12. The changes made were to:

  • amend an outdated reference from “Perth” to “Dundee” (p.11 paragraph 3);
  • insert an additional sentence to describe the role of established local NHS testing arrangements (p.11 paragraph 3); and
  • insert two additional sentences to describe the role of the NHS Scotland Laboratory network (p.12 paragraph 6).

The HTML and PDF have been updated to reflect these changes.
