NHS Fife is aware of a recent cluster of confirmed COVID-19 cases associated with Mossview Care Home in Lochgelly.
A total of 25 residents tested positive for the virus. A further 43 staff have also tested positive for COVID-19.
Sadly, 10 people died after contracting COVID-19 and our thoughts are with their loved ones at this difficult time.
NHS Fife’s Health Protection Team and the Fife Health and Social Care Partnership worked closely with Fife Council’s Environmental Health Service to support the management of the care home and offer advice to prevent spread of the virus. The care home was closed to new admissions and has since reopened since it is now 14 days since the last positive test.
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.
A local online support hub has been created to provide information on testing for COVID-19 and updates on the pandemic. Visit: www.nhsfife.org/coronavirus
