What sick leave am I entitled to if I fall ill with Covid-19?

As recently set out by the Scottish Government, if you become unwell with Covid-19 and need to be absent from work, you will be treated as though you have five or more years’ service, and will therefore have access to up to six months sick leave on full pay.

The need for this measure will be kept under review and will be withdrawn at the point at which it is considered to no longer be required.
