Latest Covid numbers in St Andrews
Last updated: 29 October 2020, 7pm
We will publish a weekly update on confirmed numbers of positive cases of Covid-19 amongst members of our University community.
These figures combine cases reported to us by students and staff through our Covid Helpdesk, and cases notified to the NHS through the national testing scheme. They give an accurate weekly snapshot of confirmed coronavirus infection currently associated with our community, and cumulatively since 1 September 2020.
We are in daily contact with colleagues in the NHS and Public Health Scotland, and meet regularly to share intelligence, agree mitigation measures and update confirmed cases.
Not all positive cases are physically in St Andrews; the figures include members of our community who live elsewhere and acquired the infection outwith the University.
New cases reported this week are in the main in individuals who left St Andrews over Independent Learning Week, acquired the infection elsewhere and tested positive on their return.
