Outbreak closes contact tracing centre in Scotland

A contact tracing centre in Scotland has become the centre of a coronavirus outbreak after six workers tested positive.

Sitel, which operates the call centre for NHS England to help prevent the spread of Covid-19 south of the border, said it was aware of a “local outbreak” at its site in Motherwell.

Deputy First Minister John Swinney told BBC Radio’s Good Morning Scotland that the site had been closed.

He said “extensive contact tracing” was now under way – attempting to find who the contact tracers have been in contact with. BBC News
