Responding to the Scottish Government’s five point plan for student testing, Scottish Green health spokesperson Alison Johnstone said:
“I have consistently called for Scotland to show much more ambition on asymptomatic testing, so I welcome this move in the right direction on students.
“However, I’m concerned that the minister couldn’t commit to the same robust testing when students return in January. We don’t want to see the same mess of students being locked in halls again in the new year. Testing can’t be a one-off initiative, it needs to be an ongoing commitment.
