Update to Scottish Government COVID-19 Guidelines – May 2022

Revision to TestEd Study protocol in keeping with Scottish Government COVID-19 Guidelines

The TestEd Management group has reviewed study procedures in light of the recent update to Scottish Government COVID-19 Guidelines: May 2022. From beginning of May, COVID-19 Test and Protect has moved to a new steady state policy in which COVID-19 population symptomatic testing has moved to target testing for clinical care only.

TestEd will no longer advise positive participants to seek confirmation by a lateral flow test nor NHS PCR test. Also, given that all COVID-19 rules and restrictions have been lifted in Scotland, please note that TestEd will be removing the provision to positive participants of a £50 food voucher from the 13th of May.
