An employee at the five-star Gleneagles Hotel has tested positive for coronavirus.
Colleagues who came into contact with the worker at the world-famous Perthshire establishment are now isolating at home, bosses have confirmed.
However, the golf resort remains open to the public and no guests have been affected.
The employee works in the administrative department and is said to have had no contact with visitors.
A spokeswoman for the luxury resort, near Auchterarder, said management will keep a close eye on the situation.
She said: “This was an isolated case affecting an administrative member of our team who has no interaction with guests.
“All those colleagues who had contact with the individual were notified through NHS Scotland’s Test and Protect programme and are now self-isolating in line with government guidance.
“We will continue to monitor the situation carefully.”
She added: “The safety of everyone who comes to Gleneagles is our top priority.”
The single Covid-19 case comes just days after a vistit to the landmark hotel by professional boxer Tyson Fury.
He shared a video on Instragram of his group enjoying a meal at the resort, as part of a tour around Scotland.
The landmark Perthshire hotel closed to guests in March when the UK went into full lockdown.
Sharan Pasricha, founder and CEO of Ennismore, which owns Gleneagles, said it was with a “heavy heart” that it would have to close its doors.
Mr Pasricha told The Courier at the time that while the team were “saddened” by the move, the wellbeing of staff and guests remained a priority.
He said: “Our team and guests’ health and wellbeing is our top priority and, while we’re deeply saddened by this development, we believe it is a vital measure to protect their safety.
“We are supporting our team, in particular all our staff members who live in on-site accommodation and far from home, through this unexpected and difficult period.
“As the current public health situation brings uncertainty for everyone, including the whole Gleneagles team, we look forward to brighter days ahead when we will open our doors and come together again as a team, stronger than ever before.”
