About the Scottish COVID-19 Inquiry

The Scottish COVID-19 Inquiry is investigating the devolved strategic response to the coronavirus pandemic in Scotland between 1 January 2020 and 31 December 2022.

The independent Inquiry will establish the facts, identify the lessons that need to be learned and make recommendations to Scottish Ministers, so we are better prepared in future.

People have suffered because of COVID-19 in Scotland and their experiences during the pandemic will be at the heart of the Inquiry's work, guiding its investigations and informing its reports.
