One further case has tested positive for COVID-19 as part of an existing cluster of cases in the Greater Glasgow and Clyde area. This individual is a known contact of an earlier case.
This now takes the total to 14. None of the cases are experiencing anything but mild symptoms.
Health and local environmental health staff are working closely to trace any close contacts of the cases, and appropriate advice is being given to these individuals including on self-isolation.
Dr Daniel Carter, Consultant in Public Health Medicine and Chair of the IMT, said: “All those who have tested positive for COVID-19 and their close contacts have been given appropriate advice and are self-isolating.
“We would like to remind people of the importance of continuing with the general measures to minimise the risk of COVID-19 to themselves and to others. These include social distancing, regular handwashing, and being vigilant for symptoms. Anyone with symptoms should immediately self-isolate and seek a test.
“Anyone who needs to do anything over and above these general measures will be contacted by the Test and Protect service and given specific advice.”
