LEISURE centres across Shetland are now set to remain closed until at least the middle of February.

The centres had previously been set to reopen at the start of February.

Shetland Recreational Trust said the decision to close until mid-February was made in “order to help drive the number of cases down within Shetland and continued closure of schools, also in-line with the current message from NHS Shetland ‘stay at home’.”

Chief executive Steven Laidlaw said that although the number of cases per day is not as high as it has been, there are still cases being reported and in order to protect the safety of staff and the public “we must all try and stick to the rules”.

The trust will continue to offer online classes and it is asking the public to send in requests for different types of classes they would like to see.

The situation will remain under review and the trust hopes to reopen the doors at its centres when it is safe to do so.
