POSITIVE coronavirus cases at six Dunfermline and Rosyth schools have been confirmed.

NHS Fife announced this morning (Tuesday) that two high schools and four primaries have been hit with COVID-19.

Dunfermline High School and St Columba's High School have both had positive tests, as have Canmore PS, Pitreavie PS and St Leonard's PS.

Camdean PS in Rosyth was also named on the list of schools impacted.

The schools listed have all had at least one case occurring in pupils or staff between Monday and Sunday last week, and where five or more school contacts have been required to isolate after contact tracing has taken place.

An NHS Fife spokesperson said: "Anyone with the well-established symptoms of COVID-19, regardless of how mild, should immediately self-isolate and order a test on the NHS inform website www.nhsinform.scot or by calling 0800 028 2816. 

"There are a number of useful resources available for parents in Fife, with information on how best to reduce the chances of your family contracting the virus and what you should do if someone in the household develops symptoms. These can be accessed at: www.nhsfife.org/news-updates/campaigns/coronavirus-information/information-for-parents/.

"Furthermore, Fife Council has made a comprehensive list of questions and answers available for parents and carers at: www.fife.gov.uk/schoolcovidfaqs."
