The Government will be guided by scientific advice and is prepared to take decisive action as needed. The Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) reviews the scientific evidence and as of 29 June, the Government has released minutes and papers discussed at SAGE and its sub-committees, up to SAGE 47 on 16 July. The release of documents will continue as soon as is reasonably practicable after each SAGE meeting throughout the COVID-19 emergency. These publications can be found at the following link:
