No new Orkney COVID-19 cases recorded

No new Orkney COVID-19 cases have been recorded during the past 24 hours, according to figures published by the Scottish Government.

This marks 24 days 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 therefore also marks 55 days since the last Orkney resident tested positive for COVID-19 — recorded in the Scottish Government’s figures on February 18.

The total number of cases recorded in Orkney since the pandemic began remains at 71.

If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you must self-isolate immediately and book a test.
