MORE THAN 350 individuals associated with Fife schools have been asked to self-isolate.

A total of 358 people were asked to take the precaution for the seven days up to April 23. That's a big leap from the previous week, with just 30 individuals self-isolating in the seven days up to April 16.

The total number of positive cases of school-age young people in Fife and staff who work in Fife schools, reported via Public Health, up to April 23 was 20, compared to 17 for the previous seven days.
