Please note that in the last updated issued on Mon 07 December 2020, it was wrongly stated that there were 5 new cases at both Balcurvie Primary School and Levenmouth Academy. There was only 1 additional case at each school and we apologise for this error.

Cases in nurseries and schools are listed above if there has been an impact on the school or if action is needed to be taken.   

Where there is more than one confirmed case, this does not necessarily suggest transmission within the school and may relate to a sibling or household group, or it may be separate incidences of community-acquired infection.

There are a number of useful resources available for parents in Fife, with information on how best to reduce the chances of your family contracting the virus and what you should do if someone in the household develops symptoms. These can be accessed at: www.nhsfife.org/news-updates/campaigns/coronavirus-information/information-for-parents/.

Furthermore, Fife Council has made a comprehensive list of questions and answers available for parents and carers at: www.fife.gov.uk/schoolcovidfaqs.

Anyone with any one or more of the symptoms should immediately self-isolate and order a test on the NHS inform website www.nhsinform.scot or by calling 0800 028 2816.
