In this week’s Shetland Times

In today’s (Friday 15th January) edition of The Shetland Times:

  • Tens of thousands of pounds are being lost by companies in Shetland’s seafood sector as a result of new Brexit paperwork.
  • A serious flaw with the Protect Scotland app could have lead to thousands of Scots missing notifications to self-isolate. A Bressay resident discovered the issue, which could mean Shetlanders have missed alerts to isolate over the last month.
  • Delays of almost two weeks to contact trace people are not to blame for the current outbreak of cases, according to NHS Shetland.
  • Councillor Ian Scott has complaints against him by council leadership thrown out by the Electoral Standards Commission.
  • NHS chief Michael Dickson says he is not concerned by figures which show Shetland lagging behind Orkney and the Western Isles in its vaccination programme.
