The number of Covid-19 cases associated with St Andrews University has risen to 21.

NHS Fife has revealed nine more cases have been confirmed following the last update earlier this week.

The tally involves both students and members of university staff.

The news comes as Professor Sally Mapstone, the university’s Principal, urged all students to steer clear of pubs and restaurants as part of another voluntary lockdown this weekend.

A spokesperson for NHS Fife said: “NHS Fife’s Health Protection Team continues to work closely with colleagues at the University of St Andrews to prevent further infection and mitigate the effect of any positive cases which do occur.

“Contact tracing is also ongoing to ensure those identified as coming into contact with positive cases are provided with the appropriate guidance and support.”

Anyone experiencing symptoms such as a high temperature; a new, continuous cough; or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste, is urged to arrange to be tested using the UK Government Citizens’ Portal or by calling 0800 028 2816.
