NEW regulations have come into effect in Scotland making coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) a notifiable disease and severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2019 (SARS-CoV-2) a notifiable organism.
This regulation will require registered medical practitioners to notify their health board if they have reasonable grounds to suspect that a patient has coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). This information must then be shared onwards to the Common Services Agency.
