Westminster shut down early for Easter and Holyrood is operating on a restricted timetable, meaning politicians are among those now working from home.
Constituency offices are closed to avoid social contact, leaving many parliamentarians performing their roles from kitchen tables and living rooms.
Stewart Stevenson, SNP MSP for Banffshire and Buchan Coast, is aged over 70 and started staying at home before lockdown was announced.
He meets his staff virtually via his computer, and is still lobbying the Scottish government on behalf of constituents and local businesses.
He says “I get emails and contacts from social media all the time. I’ve been up since 6am dealing with it."
When Christine Jardine, the Lib Dem MP for Edinburgh West, isn’t house-training her new puppy Brora she says she is holding telephone surgeries and working for constituents.
She insists it’s still possible to be an effective MP while housebound: “It takes a wee bit of imagination, a wee bit of flexibility, and also your team all have to be willing to do it.”
