Update on recent COVID-19 announcement

On Tuesday, 12 January we issued an announcement confirming positive COVID-19 cases on the Isles of Scilly. We promised to provide an update as soon as we could and we are now pleased to confirm that all close contacts of affected individuals have been identified and are safely self-isolating.

If you have not been contacted you are not required to self-isolate. Please simply continue to follow the government guidance and take every precaution to help minimise the risk of spread: stay at home wherever possible, keep indoor spaces well-ventilated, wash hands frequently, maintain social distance and wear a face covering.

Please also remember to get a test at the first sign of any coronavirus symptoms. You can access a test by calling our Testing Helpline on 01626 204 950 or by emailing d-ccg.devoncovid19testing@nhs.net.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns relating to COVID-19, please email keepscillysafe@scilly.gov.uk.
