Four weeks with no recorded COVID-19 case for Orkney
No new Orkney COVID-19 cases have been recorded today, Sunday, NHS Orkney has confirmed.
This marks four weeks exactly since the last positive case was recorded, when a marine vessel in Orkney waters was revealed to be carrying a positive case. As NHS Orkney was the nearest health board, the case was attributed to Orkney’s figures, even though no Orkney residents were involved.
It has therefore been 59 days since an Orkney resident last tested positive for COVID-19, recorded in the Scottish Government’s figures on February 18.
The total number of cases attributed to Orkney since the pandemic began remains at 71.
If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you must self-isolate immediately and book a test.
