Coronavirus (COVID-19) response

Protecting Scotland’s environment, communities and our people:
Our coronavirus (COVID-19) response


Every day SEPA works to protect and enhance Scotland’s environment, helping businesses and communities thrive within the resources of our planet. 

SEPA has an important role in the life of Scotland and against a backdrop of a rapidly changing situation, we’re focused on protecting our environment, communities and our people.

Protecting Scotland’s environment

As Scotland’s environmental regulator, we’re continuing to protect our stunning environment while supporting Scotland’s businesses and public partners to adapt during this difficult time.

Protecting Scotland’s communities

We’re protecting Scottish communities through our vital flood forecasting and warning services.

Protecting our people

We’re firmly focused on supporting our people at this difficult time.

Our people are working hard to provide priority services that remain as vital as ever. We’re working daily with Scottish Government, resilience partners, businesses and communities and are responding quickly to challenges as they emerge.

Over the coming days and weeks we’ll use this site to provide information to support Scottish businesses and public partners, advise on our frontline public services and answer common questions.
