Commenting on the decision to continue existing Covid-19 safety mitigations in Scottish schools, Dr Patrick Roach, General Secretary of NASUWT - The Teachers’ Union, said:

“We welcome the Scottish Government's decision to continue existing health and safety mitigations in schools.

“Regrettably, speculation on this matter over the past week has been unhelpful and caused unnecessary stress and anxiety to many teachers. It is essential that caution continues to be exercised at this time.”

Mike Corbett, NASUWT National Official Scotland, said:

“Education Secretary Shirley-Anne Somerville acknowledges 'the previous sharp decline in Covid-19 case numbers starting to level off', but in reality in some council areas in Scotland cases are on the increase again.

“This makes the decision to exercise caution on removing any health and safety mitigations a sensible one.”
