A Covid-19 cluster with possible links to the Aberdeen outbreak is being investigated in Angus.
NHS Tayside’s Health Protection Team has confirmed it is currently investigating five linked positive cases in the north east Angus area.
More than 50 other people have been identified as contacts.
NHS Tayside Associate Director of Public Health, Dr Daniel Chandler said: “Five positive cases, which are all connected, have been identified, with one having a direct link to the outbreak in Aberdeen.
“All of the positive cases have mild symptoms and none has required any medical care.
“NHS Tayside Health Protection Team, in conjunction with NHS Grampian and the national Test and Protect service, has identified a further 54 individuals as contacts and these have been followed up with advice on self isolating and offered testing where this has been appropriate.
“There is currently no evidence of wider community spread in Angus or elsewhere in Tayside.
“No individual premises, businesses or establishments are currently linked to the ongoing investigation.
“We continue to be vigilant and encourage anyone who has symptoms of COVID-19 to book a test.”
Health bosses said no further details on the location of the cases would be released, but an update on the situation is due to be given on Wednesday.
