Covid-19 was reported in two parts of Caithness – both in Thurso – during the latest seven-day period covered by Public Health Scotland’s interactive dashboard.

The online resource has a map giving the number of positive cases in specific Scottish "neighbourhoods", seven of which are within Caithness, as well as trends for local authorities and NHS boards.

The latest Public Health Scotland figures cover the period November 2-8.

Where there are fewer than five positive cases in an area, the actual number is not provided "to protect patient confidentiality".

The dashboard shows there were between one and four positive cases in the Thurso East and Thurso West neighbourhoods.

There were no cases in Caithness North East, Caithness North West, Caithness South, Wick North or Wick South.

The Sutherland North and West area, including the north coast communities, had between one and four positive cases.

The dashboard reported 61 positive cases in the Highland local authority area during the seven-day period.
