Care home death

AN ANNANDALE care home has been hit by an outbreak of Covid-19 and one person has sadly died. A resident at Lydiafield Care Home, Annan, has died in the past week.

There are currently a total of 16 positive Covid-19 cases among residents and staff at the home.

A spokesman for Dumfries and Galloway Health and Social Care Partnership (DGHSCP) said: “The operator of this care home has been faced with a challenging and difficult situation, but full credit is due to them and their very dedicated staff for the responses that have been mounted.”

Cases of coronavirus are still being recorded in high numbers across Annandale and Eskdale, Nithsdale and Stewartry.

The DGHSCP said “there is clear evidence that it is being transmitted within the community”.
