Seven schools within the Greater Glasgow and Clyde health board region have begun coronavirus contact tracing. 

Test and Protect teams are currently working to establish close contacts from four Glasgow schools, one East Dunbartonshire school, one East Renfrewshire school and one Clydebank school after a number of positive cases.

Those identified are being asked to self-isolate for 14 days. 

Those to begin the contact tracing include: 

  • High School of Glasgow (Ind), Glasgow
  • St Thomas Acquinas Secondary School, Glasgow
  • Lenzie Academy, East Dunbartonshire
  • Crookfur Primary School, East Renfrewshire
  • St Peter the Apostle High School, Clydebank
  • Holyrood Secondary School, Glasgow
  • Caldercuilt Primary School, Glasgow

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde have said there is currently no evidence to suggest transmission of the virus within any of the schools. 

Apart from those identified under the Test and Protect programme, all other individuals from each of the schools can continue to attend as normal.

A statement from NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde reads: "Apart from those who are identified as close contacts, all other staff and pupils can continue to attend as normal.

"The exception to this applies to East Renfrewshire, Glasgow City, West Dunbartonshire, East Dunbartonshire and Renfrewshire where additional COVID-19 control measures are in place.

"In these Local Authority areas, any close contacts of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 are being advised that they and all those in their household group, should self-isolate for 14 days."
