Fife communities have been rallying round to help people forced to self-isolate as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
Across the region, Fifers have set up groups to help with shopping, picking up prescriptions and tackling feelings of loneliness.
Among those taking action is the 77th Fife Scout Group in Kelty, who have reached out to those who are self-isolating and NHS workers in need of support.
Cub leader Claire Fernie, 40, said the outbreak had the potential to bring the community closer, even if people were physically having to distance themselves.
"Everybody is busy working and we live in a 24-seven environment, so it's important for us to help our neighbours and support each other in what could be a potentially difficult time.
"It's very much the ethos of scouting."
Ms Fernie said precautions would be taken when dropping off shopping to ensure there is no face to face contact with vulnerable individuals.
Kelty residents in need of assistance are asked to contact Ms Fernie on 07960875509.
Across Fife, a number of communities have joined the Covid-19 Mutual Aid UK movement, including Cupar and St Andrews.
Cupar's group, called Enlighten Cupar on Facebook, posted the message: "Please remember that this group is not for the provision of medical advice.
"This group is for neighbours and community members in the Cupar, Fife and surrounding area to share kindness and compassion in unprecedented times."
There have been rumours that a handful of Scotland's confirmed cases of Covid-19 were in Cupar, and that one had links with St John's and Dairsie United Parish Church.
Church minister Rev Gavin Black posted an update on Facebook to reassure parishioners.
He said: "St Johns Church has become aware of some conversations within the community that it had been said that a child has been diagnosed with coronavirus with a connection to our church.
"We wish to ensure that the correct information from our earlier announcement today is fully understood in order to reassure the public.
"The announcement was that on Tuesday March 10 one of our regular hall users – adult – was in the church hall and subsequently, due to signs and symptoms, has been advised to self-isolate.
"All users of our hall after that date have been advised of the matter and that the hall is now closed until it is deep cleaned.
"Should anyone have any concerns they should contact their GP or NHS Inform.
"I hope and pray that as this virus continues to develop that our community friends and family will not be too adversely affected."
