The Test and Protect contact tracking system is currently being used at a Paisley Primary School.

The NHS has confirmed that the Problem Assessment Group (PAG) met this afternoon and have established a list of close contacts within Todholm Primary School.

Those that have been identified are being asked to self-isolate.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde said that in order to respect and maintain patient confidentiality, no further details of those involved will be released.

Dr Catriona Milosevic, Consultant in Public Health Medicine, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde said:

“Close contacts are being advised to self-isolate and being given appropriate advice. We are working closely with Todholm Primary School and Renfrewshire Council to do this.

“To maintain patient confidentiality we are unable to give any further information.

“To control the spread of the virus it is essential that any one contacted by Test and Protect follows the directions given including self-isolation. Anyone who may have been exposed are being given appropriate advice.

“We would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone of the importance of continuing with the general measures to minimise the risk of COVID-19 to themselves and to others. These include social distancing, regular hand washing, and being vigilant for symptoms. Anyone with symptoms should immediately self-isolate and seek a test.”
