The number of confirmed Covid-19 cases at two student halls in Dundee has risen to 84, an increase of 32 since Saturday.
NHS Tayside said there were now 68 cases at Parker House, run by private company IQ, and 16 cases at Abertay University’s Meadowside Halls.
Testing kits have been made available to all residents who wish to be tested.
All 500 students Parker House have been asked to self-isolate for 14 days and support is being provided.
The health board said the isolation period would be reviewed and could be reduced for some individuals based on test results.
Dr Daniel Chandler, associate director of public health and chairman of the NHS Tayside incident management team, said there had been no reports of any students experiencing serious illness or complications.
He added: “Contract tracing is continuing and I would encourage all students who develop symptoms to self-isolate and book a test as soon as possible.
“Our advice to students who are self-isolating remains to stay in their accommodation.
“The Scottish government has advised that students who require the support and care of a friend, family member or other supportive person to comply with the requirement to self-isolate, can return home.
“This must be arranged through your accommodation provider to ensure students are collected safely and the risk of spread of Covid-19 is minimised. It is very important to continue to follow the guidance on self-isolating to ensure any return home can be done as safely as possible.
  • Growth through innovation/creativity:
    Rather than be constrained by ideas for new products, services and new markets coming from just a few people, a Thinking Corporation can tap into the employees.
  • Increased profits:
    The corporation will experience an increase in profits due to savings in operating costs as well as sales from new products, services and ventures.
  • Higher business values:
    The link between profits and business value means that the moment a corporation creates a new sustainable level of profit, the business value is adjusted accordingly.
  • Lower staff turnover:
    This, combined with the culture that must exist for innovation and creativity to flourish, means that new employees will be attracted to the organization.
