There are 26 new coronavirus cases in the north and north-east from the past 24 hours, Scottish Government figures have shown.
Orkney’s case total has risen for the third consecutive day with one additional new case taking its total to 15.
The other 25 new cases are in the NHS Grampian region, where the case total is now 1,812.
There are no new cases in the Highlands, Shetland or the Western Isles.
There have been a steady number of new Covid-19 cases in the north-east since an outbreak linked to a number of Aberdeen pubs was detected earlier this month.
A total of 204 recent coronavirus cases have now been linked to Aberdeen pubs.
The cluster, first associated with The Hawthorn Bar, led to the city being put into a fresh lockdown last week, with pubs and restaurants being closed and restrictions put on travel and gatherings.
More than 20 other north-east premises were initially named by NHS Grampian as having been attended by people who had tested positive, and experts went further this week and said that almost all pubs in the city could have been affected.
There have been more new cases in Grampian in August than there were in the whole of June and July.
