A number of construction workers from the Dunbeg housing development are self-isolating after a colleague tested positive for Covid.

Track and trace was carried out and in addition to those contacted, a number of other workers decided to self-isolate too.

Jane MacLeod from MacLeod Construction Ltd said the site building 300 new homes was still operational and was working in line with strict virus protocols.

She said: ‘A staff member informed us on Monday January 11 that over the preceding weekend they had tested positive for Covid-19.  Track and trace has been done, and in addition to this a number of others have chosen to self-isolate.  Our site continues to operate in line with strict protocols in place in line with government and the Construction Industry Coronavirus Forum (CICV). All our sites and contracts are run in accordance with the foregoing protocols.’
