A further five Covid-19 cases have been recorded for Shetland in Monday’s official figures.
The latest update follows the 19 new cases recorded on Sunday, which was the highest daily update since the outbreak around Christmas and New Year.
The recent cases have included a number related to Scalloway Primary School.
NHS Shetland’s interim director of public health Susan Laidlaw said yesterday the rise in cases was “not unexpected” and was being felt across Scotland.
Scotland broke its record for new daily cases on three occasions in the past week.
Dr Laidlaw urged people to take regular tests, even if not symptomatic.
