Kirkcaldy High School is one of the schools affected

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.
