The pandemic is not over... Support & planning must continue

The pandemic is not over... Support & planning must continue

The public health emergency posed by the pandemic is not over. This is clear due to the rapid spread of the Omicron variant, and the urgent response it has demanded. Several witnesses told us that many services for children and young people have not been able to return to pre-pandemic levels. This was often because of a lack of capacity and resilience within different services. The Scottish Government has said that keeping schools open is one of its highest priorities. Given the constantly changing situation, the Committee seeks assurances that the Scottish Government has contingency plans in place to ensure the continuity of education and youth services in the face of current, but also future, challenges caused by COVID-19.
