Coronavirus Statement from NLC

We are following advice from both the Scottish and UK governments and the NHS on coronavirus.

Updated: Monday 16 March 2020

The advice is clear: anyone displaying the symptoms of the coronavirus should self-isolate at home for seven days. Symptoms include a new persistent cough or a high temperature.
More information on self-isolation and symptoms is available at

This advice applies to everyone, including school pupils who display these symptoms.

In line with national health advice, we are not closing schools where there are reports of pupils with these symptoms. All schools are being cleaned on a daily basis with a particular focus on cleaning surface areas.

These are very challenging times and we thank you for your support and co-operation.
