Asked by: Ross Greer, West Scotland, Scottish Green Party
Date lodged: 12 January 2022

Question

To ask the Scottish Government what information it has on how many teachers currently have long COVID.

Current status: Answered by Shirley-Anne Somerville on 21 January 2022


Answer

The Scottish Government does not hold this information.

We recognise the negative impact that long COVID can have on the health and wellbeing of those affected. We are taking action to ensure that people are supported in the most appropriate way possible. The Advisory Subgroup on Education and Children’s Issues takes account of long COVID in their deliberations.

ONS’ long COVID estimates by employment sector aren’t broken down by nation – all estimates by employment sector are at UK level only.
