Coronavirus / New Covid-19 case confirmed

A NEW case of coronavirus has been confirmed in Shetland, bringing the total tally to 66.

The new case is a local resident, with the infection possibly associated with international travel.

All those in their circle, and others who might be impacted, are being contacted and asked to self-isolate.

NHS Shetland director of nursing and acute services Kathleen Carolan said: “While we are not yet experiencing a high volume of new cases, we are vulnerable and remain at risk as the situation across Scotland is serious.

“The virus is highly contagious – keeping washing your hands, avoiding crowded places and close contact with other people are the best ways to avoid infection.”

Anyone with symptoms must request a test by filling in a test request form on the NHS Shetland website.
