The Scottish Government is to deploy two mobile testing units to the P&J Live venue to provide extra capacity for testing amid the local outbreak.
Four additional mobile units will also be deployed, taking the capacity for tests per day to 2,000.
Currently 233 close contacts have been identified by the track and trace system but that number is expected to rise.
This evening a Scottish Government spokesman detailed the testing efforts and said NHS Grampian was “rapidly” training more staff to support the increased demand.
He said: “An additional 16 staff and other support is being provided from the National Contact Tracing Centre and given the rising number of cases, work is underway with respect to Board to Board mutual aid as we would expect.
“As we move towards containment of the virus, it is important we remain flexible in our deployment of contact tracers and we will support boards with additional resource as and when they need it.
“Two Mobile Testing Units have now been deployed to Aberdeen at the P&J Live venue. A further four Mobile Testing Units are available to be deployed giving a total potential testing capacity of 2,000 tests per day.”
A small team of eight tracers was left when most staff trained by NHS Grampian went back to full-time employment.
They initially trained 180 people for the role and are now increasing their contact tracing team again.
