Positive cases of Covid-19 were reported in two areas of Caithness over the latest seven-day period covered by Public Health Scotland’s interactive dashboard .

It provides a map showing the number of 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 October 6-12.

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 Caithness North West and Caithness North East.

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

It reports 29 positive cases in Highland during the seven-day period.

NHS Highland – covering an area from Caithness to Kintyre – has said since the start of the pandemic that it gives the number of confirmed cases on a region-wide basis due to patient confidentiality.
