NHS Fife can confirm that three people with links to Fife College have recently tested positive for COVID-19.

There is evidence of a potential link between two of the three cases, however, there is no evidence of wider transmission within the college at this stage and the risk to students and staff appears to be low. 

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.

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, is urged to arrange to be testing using the UK Government Citizens’ Portal or by calling 0800 028 2816.

A local online support hub has been created to provide information on testing for COVID-19, and updates on the pandemic. Visit: https://coronavirus.nhsfife.org/
