COVID-19 cases ‘well below expected number’ according to emergency group
Seven people in Orkney have been test-confirmed as suffering from coronavirus, while two have sadly died.
The group — a collaboration of key partner agencies including Orkney Islands Council and Police Scotland — are continuing to meet virtually to monitor the response to COVID-19 across Orkney.
OLECG have thanked the people of Orkney for their commitment in keeping this virus contained to a relatively low number of cases and hope this can continue when we do move into the next stage of lockdown.
And, as this is Mental Health Awareness Week, they have offered a number of contact details to make sure that people know that support and help are still open.
