NHS Fife can confirm that a small number of individuals with links to Sinclairtown Primary School have tested positive for COVID-19.

All confirmed cases have mild symptoms and are currently isolating at home.

Contact tracers from the Test and Protect Team are in the process of identifying and tracing the known contacts of the positive cases to provide public health support and advice.

As a precaution, all children at Sinclairtown Primary School have been asked to stay off school today (23/09) while NHS Fife’s Public Health Team carries out a thorough risk assessment and examines any potential link between the positive cases.

A further update will be issued in due course.

It is important that anyone experiencing the well-established symptoms of COVID-19, such as a high temperature; a new, continuous cough; or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste, arranges to be tested using the UK Government Citizens’ Portal or by calling 0800 028 2816.
