A Glasgow nursery and an additional primary school are the latest among those in the city to be affected by Covid-19.

Contact tracing has now been rolled out at St Monica's Primary School and Milton Community Nursery to identify close contacts to those to have tested positive for the virus. 

The Glasgow Times understands a total of nine children have been sent home to self-isolate from the North Glasgow pre-school. #

Glasgow City Council has since said schools and nurseries within the region are "routinely" updating their health and safety risk assessments in accordance with the Scottish Government health advice. 

A spokeswoman said: "When our schools and nurseries are linked to a positive coronavirus case we have a robust process in place to liaise with our public health experts, communicate directly with parents and carers to give advice and support and arrange learning from home for pupils who need to self-isolate as a precaution.

"Schools are routinely updating their health and safety risk assessments in order to help suppress and reduce the spread of the virus.

"Everyone has a role to play by following the current advice and guidance and the rules about face coverings, hand washing and physical distancing to help keep us safe."

Meanwhile, Test and Protect teams are currently working to identify close contacts in Castlmilk after a spate of coronavirus-related incidents at Castlemilk High School.
