Trialling - Test, Trace, Isolate, Support

Please consider running a trial of Test, Trace, Isolate and Support in order to maximise lessons learned prior to going 'live' across the country. Shetland Isles may be a suitable candidate to undertake trials - obviously with the islanders full support. The use of an appropriate phone based App also has potential benefits.

Why the contribution is important

When the numbers of people who have contracted Covid-19 have reached a more manageable level, then
Test, Trace, Isolate, Support will aid quarantining and thus further contamination in the community

    From what I understand TTIS is the way to go and much less invasive than the tracing app idea. I do not believe the bubble idea will work and TTIS is more pragmatic.

    Sorry, don't believe it will be worth the effort if only applied at end of May, it may have helped in February!

    I also think that there is a natural opportunity to roll out TTIS from the islands, both north and west and then southwards.

    This might provide an opportunity for economically more fragile areas to get back to some semblance of normal faster.

    We would need to accept some restriction on movement to make this work: especially as it moves out of the Highlands. Staying within Health Board Areas would give a first cut of reasonable maxima (but home - work -shop: minimum travel is where we need to stay awhile).

    I am not willing to download an app.

    Test all people dealing with elderlie and sick, carers, carehomes, hospitals, health centres. I would not visit anybody that felt unsave and vulnerable. I wouldn't do that if I had the "flu" either.

    Contact tracing is already a well established public health procedure so does not need trialling from that point of view. In respect of using an app to augment the human approach this is already being trialled in Isle of Wight so let's wait for results from there. Another example of our scottish government confusing things buy inventing their own name for procedure rather than sticking with that already in use across UK. There have been lots of grand words from SNP about wanting a consistent four nation approach but this is another example of the actions not matching the speeches.
