The Scottish Enterprise COVID-19 Business Helpline Number is: 0300 303 0660
Please see below for additional information on the COVID-19 testing program for key workers. Please note that the Scottish government has confirmed to SGF directly that convenience store staff are key workers.
You can get an appointment at one of the drive-thru testing centres if you or a member of your family is symptomatic or you can request a home testing kit. This service is experiencing very high demand and there may be temporary limitations on the number of testing kits available on a daily basis. The home test kits will be delivered by Amazon and sent directly to your home so you can perform the test yourself. The test will then be collected by Royal Mail courier.
