Pupils at a Kirkcaldy primary school have been told to self-isolate after a positive Covid-19 result.
NHS Fife confirmed that an individual linked to Sinclairtown Primary School has tested positive, and, as a result, some pupils have been told to stay at home.
All pupils from P1A, P4 and some pupils in P2 have been asked to stay off school from today (Monday 21st) and self isolate
NHS Fife said the action was a precaution, and that there was no evidence of any onward transmission within the school.
A statement said: “The positive case continues to have mild symptoms and remains isolating at home with other household members.
“There continues to be no evidence of any onward transmission within the school at this stage and the risk to pupils and staff remains low.”
NHS Fife said anyone who develops any of the established symptoms of the virus, such as a fever; or a loss or change in taste or smell; or a new and continuous cough, should arrange testing using the UK Government Citizens’ portal or by calling 0800 028 2816
Fife Council has created a comprehensive list of questions and answers for parents and carers
A local online support hub has also been created to provide information on testing for COVID-19, and updates on the pandemic.
