With restrictions having been eased across much of the country last weekend, local people in Kirkcaldy and across Fife are being reminded to follow the FACTS public health guidance.
This means wearing appropriate face coverings, avoiding crowded places, cleaning hands and surfaces, remaining two metres apart wherever possible and self-isolating immediately should anyone develop the signs or symptoms of Covid-19; such as a new, continuous cough; a fever or a loss or change in the sense of smell or taste.
Testing remains a vital part of preventing spread of the virus and Fifer's are encouraged to visit one of the local testing sites established across Fife, if they have any symptoms or are concerned that they may have been in contact with a positive case.
