Coronavirus / Scalloway Boating Club to remain closed as precautionary measure after Covid link

THE SCALLOWAY Boating Club will remain closed over the weekend as a precautionary measure after it was linked to positive cases of Covid-19.

“Positive Covid cases have been identified and connected with the club last weekend. Track and Trace have been in touch with all those in direct contact and they are now isolating,” the club said on Facebook on Wednesday morning.

“We sincerely hope, anyone testing positive have mild symptoms and are well again very soon. We have arranged for a deep clean to make sure we are safe to open again.

“Thank you for understanding and we look forward to welcoming you again soon.”

A total of eight Covid cases were reported for Shetland in Tuesday’s daily Scottish Government update, following on from four on Monday.

A total of 30 have been confirmed in Shetland since the start of July.

NHS Shetland said it was inevitable that more cases will emerge as restrictions ease.

The health board continues to remind people to self-isolate if they have Covid symptoms, or have a positive lateral flow test. If someone has a positive lateral flow result they are asked to request a PCR test.

Folk are also encouraged to keep washing hands, wear a face covering when required, distance from other people in public places and avoid crowds.
