NHS Shetland has reminded people that two metre social distancing is still in place at the Gilbert Bain Hospital, health centres and dental surgeries.
Patients, visitors and health care staff must also wear the masks provided and use hand sanitiser.
Meanwhile two new cases of Covid-19 have been recorded in Shetland.
A health board spokesperson said: “We are seeing a similar picture to previous cases with household cases and links to travel. Everyone involved has been contacted.”
It comes after a further four were recorded in Shetland on Monday.
Shetland currently has the second lowest seven day rate of cases per 100,000 people in Scotland, behind Orkney.
Yesterday (Monday) most Covid restrictions were removed in Scotland, although as mentioned previously physical distancing is still in place in healthcare settings.
NHS Shetland chief executive Michael Dickson said: “We do have vulnerable people among us – some who are not yet vaccinated. Be careful and respectful of others when you are out and about and, where possible, avoid crowded places.
“The best way to prevent the spread of Covid is to keep your hands clean and don’t get too close to others.”
