Coronavirus recovery

 

From December 2022

This is the new location for the national and local Covid-19 information, which has been held in top place on the News page since the start of lockdown in March 2020.
Regular statements about Covid-19 from the First Minister and the Scottish government have been discontinued, and replaced with more general guidance and information .
April 2023
An Emergency Alerts Factsheet from the UK Government has been distributed through Community Councils.
Information and Guidance from Highland Council and NHS Highland have continued to be issued and referenced here, on a fortnightly and weekly basis respectively.
We are now (July 2023) discontinuing publication of these briefings, which have been made available to us by Ferintosh Community Council.  We would like to thank FCC for this provision.

This page has been set up to explore issues and opinions around the idea that recovery from Covid-19, when it comes, offers an opportunity to 'bounce forward' (Rob Hopkins), or 'Build Back Better' - particularly with regard to reducing inequality and taking action to mitigate the effects of climate change - rather than just reverting to 'business as usual'.
