SIX people with links to Rosyth seafood company Mowi have tested positive for Covid-19.

NHS Fife say there is "no evidence at this stage" to suggest widespread transmission of the virus amongst staff working at the facility.

A statement from the health board said: "Contact tracers from the Test and Protect Team are in the process of identifying and tracing the known contacts of the positive cases to provide public health support and advice.

"It is important that anyone experiencing the well-established symptoms of COVID-19, such as a high temperature; a new, continuous cough; or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste, arranges to be tested using the UK Government Citizens’ Portal or by calling 0800 028 2816.

"A local online support hub has been created to provide information on testing for COVID-19, and updates on the pandemic. Visit:"

A spokesperson for Mowi said the six employees were now at home self isolating.

"These cases form two separate ‘clusters’, which originated outside of the workplace and are not linked," he said.

"We carried out immediate contact tracing internally, with a number of other employees now also self-isolating at home as a precaution; and all potential areas of transmission received additional deep-cleaning immediately. 

"We have been proactive in working with the relevant public health bodies and continue to ensure they are fully informed as the Test and Protect tracers continue their work and we believe we have taken all appropriate measures to minimise further risk. 

"The facility in Rosyth has robust precautionary measures in place that protect staff within the facility from the spread of Covid-19, and NHS Scotland has written to our employees over the weekend to confirm their assessment that the risk to them is considered ‘low’."

Reports of a positive case at the Sky Contact Centre in Dunfermline over the weekend have been denied.

One worker had contacted the Press after fears a colleague had tested positive however both NHS Fife and Sky said this was not the case.

It is believed the rumours came after an employee had to self-isolate due to a contact testing positive.
