The number of coronavirus cases linked to a Dundee School has risen.
As of 2pm today, the number of cases linked to Kingspark School was 27, up five cases.
An update issued by NHS Tayside and Dundee City Council said this number is made up of 21 members of staff, two pupils and 4 community contacts.
The school remains closed and all staff and pupils are continuing to self-isolate.
Dr Daniel Chandler said: “Due to the high level of tests undertaken among staff who work at the school, we may see a small rise in the number of positive cases as these results come through.
“The actions and measures that have been put in place will help to prevent any further spread of infection and we hope to see the numbers of positive cases to tail off over the coming days.”
Dundee City Council Executive Director of Children and Families Services, Paul Clancy added: “I would like to reassure families that this action is being taken to keep everyone safe.
“This is our paramount concern and we cannot be complacent.”
Meanwhile, cases at St Peter and Paul’s School, and Happy Times out-of-school club remain at one case each.
