This survey is being undertaken by Voluntary Action North Lanarkshire (VANL) and Voluntary Action South Lanarkshire (VASLAN) to capture information from Lanarkshire’s community and voluntary sector (CVS) to identify their support needs in relation to managing COVID-19 risks and encouraging their employees, volunteers and service users to undergo regular testing for Covid-19.
The findings from the survey will assist VANL and VASLAN in providing information, guidance and support on COVID-19 health and safety issues to the CVS.
Why is it important for me to complete this survey?
As Scotland continues to manage the spread of coronavirus amongst our communities and workforce, it is crucial to encourage employees, volunteers and service users to get tested on a regular basis to help identify more positive cases of the virus and to ensure that those who are infected, self-isolate.
Testing is crucial as around 1 in 3 people who are infected with COVID-19 have no symptoms so could be spreading the disease without knowing it. Testing can provide confidence to our employees, volunteers and service users in our communities and help to protect and enable business continuity and support a gradual return to normalised activity.
In this way, and through encouraging vaccination and practicing protective behaviours including handwashing, mask wearing and physical distancing, we will help to reduce transmission of the virus and protect people at high-risk.
