Covid-19 Contact Tracing – Glassworks Alloa

NHS Forth Valley’s Test and Protect team is currently carrying out Covid-19 contact tracing after a number of staff working at the O-I glassworks in Alloa have tested positive for coronavirus.

To respect and maintain patient confidentiality no further details will be given.

All appropriate action is being taken by our Public Health Team who are working closely with the local management team to provide advice and support.

NHS Forth Valley Consultant in Public Health, Dr Jennifer Champion, said: “We would like to take the opportunity to remind everyone of the importance of following the national guidance to minimise the risk of Covid-19 to themselves and others. This includes physical distancing indoors and outdoors, washing your hands regularly, using hand gel where appropriate and arranging to get tested immediately if any symptoms appear.”
