Nine weeks without Orkney resident testing positive for COVID-19

No new Orkney COVID-19 cases have been recorded today, Thursday, according to the Scottish Government’s daily figures.

It has therefore been 63 days — nine weeks exactly — since an Orkney resident last tested positive for COVID-19, which was recorded in the Scottish Government’s figures on February 18.

However, it only marks 32 days since the last positive case was attributed to Orkney, 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.

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.
