NHS Fife is aware of a cluster of confirmed COVID-19 cases associated with West Park Care Home in Leslie.

A total of 30 residents have tested positive for the virus. A further 21 staff have also tested positive for COVID-19.

Sadly, 12 people have died after contracting COVID-19 and our thoughts are with their loved ones at this difficult time.

Visiting is currently suspended, and the care home is closed to new admissions.

NHS Fife’s Health Protection Team and the Fife Health and Social Care Partnership are working closely with Fife Council’s Environmental Health Service to support to the management of the care home and offer advice to reduce further transmission of the virus.

Anyone experiencing the well-established symptoms of COVID-19, regardless of how mild, should immediately self-isolate and arrange a test using the NHS inform website www.nhsinform.scot  or by calling 0800 028 2816.
