The number of confirmed coronavirus cases linked to the Aberdeen cluster has risen to 134.
NHS Grampian says a total of 728 close contacts have now been contacted as efforts to limit the spread of the disease continue.
New Scottish Government figures show 28 new cases have been confirmed in the region since yesterday, but NHS Grampian has said it cannot yet confirm how many of these may be linked to the cluster.
Susan Webb, director of public health, said: “The health protection and Test & Protect teams have worked throughout the weekend to interview the detected cases and establish who their close contacts are.
“This is happening rapidly and I want to thank them for their incredibly hard work.
“I also want to acknowledge again our gratitude for the support and cooperation of the cases themselves. The information they are providing is critical to our investigation.”
She added: “We all need to take personal responsibility for our behaviour.
“Sticking with the government guidance keeps ourselves, our friends and family, and the wider population of Grampian, safe. Thorough and regular hand-washing with water & soap, observing physical distancing, using face coverings where these are required, and avoiding crowded places are all vital.
“People in Aberdeen should observe the enhanced restrictions covering the city.
“Finally, anyone who develops the recognised symptoms of Covid-19 – however mild they might be – should self-isolate immediately and arrange a test.”
