Cases in Care Homes


Information on the number of Staff and Residents tested in Care Homes with Confirmed COVID-19, presented by health board of residence.

As of 20 January 2021, Public Health Scotland took over reporting of weekly data on COVID-19 in adult Care Homes in Scotland – data prior to 11 January 2021 can be found on the Scottish Government website. These data are provisional management information submitted to the Turas Care Home Management system by Care Homes, and details numbers of people (i.e. staff and residents) tested in the last week. The numbers capture both those tests undertaken via NHS routes and those done via the Scottish Social Care portal. Figures are an undercount in some cases as complete data were not collected for all Care Homes. It is the responsibility of Boards to work with care homes as part of their oversight arrangements to quality assure these data. The role of PHS is to collate and publish only. Please use this information with caution.
