Council-run nurseries in Scalloway and in Lerwick’s Bell’s Brae have had to remain closed today [Wednesday] because of positive Covid cases.
Quality improvement manager Robin Calder said staff were required to self-isolate.
However, he said the primary departments of both schools remained open, with Covid-19 “mitigations” in place.
“We are communicating regularly with the parents and carers of nursery aged children in both the settings and we will continue to update them on the situation today,” he said.
Hame-Fae-Hame in Scalloway remains open.
