NHS Tayside has confirmed there were 29 cases of coronavirus associated with the 2 Sisters factory in Coupar, Angus. The food processing plant was closed earlier this week after staff members tested positive for the virus and 900 workers have been told to self-isolate. 


Mobile testing units have been set up at the factory and all workers have been advised to attend for a test even if they don’t have symptoms.

Dr Emma Fletcher, associate director of Public Health for NHS Tayside, said, “All agencies continue to work closely together to manage the outbreak related to the factory.

“We strongly encourage all workers to take up the offer of testing to help prevent further spread of the infection in the community.

“The public should be reassured that the plant remains non-operational however contractors are continuing to attend the site to ensure animal welfare”
