Na h-Eileanan an Iar SNP MSP Alasdair Allan has expressed his concern at the COVID-19 outbreak at the Dun Berisay Care Home in Stornoway.
Earlier today, NHS Western Isles and Comhairle nan Eilean Siar confirmed that 11 residents and 8 members of staff had tested positive. Non-essential visiting at the care home has been suspended.
Alasdair Allan MSP commented:
“This is an extremely concerning situation and I hope the affected residents and staff are able to make a swift recovery.
“Even though we have made tremendous progress with vaccinations the virus has not gone away. The outbreak shows that there is still a need for vigilance to protect the older and vulnerable members of our communities.
