Pupils at ten Fife schools self isolate after links to positive COVID cases
Pupils at ten schools across Fife have had to self isolate after being connected to positive COVID tests.
The cases were detected between May 3-9 by NHS Fife.
In each case, five or more individuals at each school were required to self isolate after contact with a positive case.
NHS Fife listed the following schools as affected: Burntisland; Fair Isle, Kirkcaldy West and Strathallan Primary Schools in Kirkcaldy; Inverkeithing High School; Inzievar Primary, Oakley; King's Road Primary, Rosyth; Kirkcaldy High; St Columba's High and Woodmill High, Dunfermline.
Where fewer than five potential contacts have been identified, NHS Fife does not identify the schools for reasons of pupil/ staff confidentiality.
Anyone with the well-established symptoms of COVID-19 should immediately self-isolate and order a test on the NHS inform website www.nhsinform.scot or by calling 0800 028 2816.
