Council Leader’s Message to The Community in Portree

Responding to the news of the outbreak of Coronavirus at Home Farm care home in Portree, Cllr Margaret Davidson, Leader of The Highland Council (pictured) said:

“I was profoundly sad to learn of the Coronavirus outbreak at Home Farm care home and my thoughts are very much with those who have lost loved ones.

“This is a very difficult and anxious time for residents, families and staff, but I have been heartened by the response from NHS Highland and the Council who have moved swiftly to support the community in Portree which has included the deployment by the Army of a mobile testing unit.

“Skye is a very close family community who will be supporting and caring for one another and I just wanted them to know that the Council and its partners will do all we can to help and support them at this time.”
