Flu and contagious diseases

Arrangements for responding to outbreaks of human communicable diseases, such as

  • pandemic influenza
  • viral haemorrhagic fever
  • Covid-19
  • swine and bird flu

are kept under review.

We check for outbreaks of contagious diseases and receive regular updates from the NHS, Health Protection Scotland, local health boards and the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA).
