First Bus have announced a reduction of services out of Bannockburn, after a considerable outbreak of coronavirus was detected within its staff.

NHS Forth Valley have been fully informed of the positive cases to help curb the spread in the region.

The decision was made in order to reduce risk of further spread of the virus in the area.  All other staff considered to be close contacts of the positive cases have since been informed by track and trace to self-isolate. This is in order to minimise threat of further infections.

Speaking to the BBC, a company spokesman has assured the public that “travelling on our buses is safe” and that “a number of safety measures and enhanced cleans are in place”.

The “safety of staff and customers” has been highlighted as the company’s “number one priority” the spokesman also said, as he stated that all bus depots are “Covid-safe” with “necessary mitigations and procedures in place as per the latest Scottish government advice”.

Since the outbreak, further Covid-19 contact tracing is being carried out, with “all appropriate action being taken by our public health team who are working closely with local management”, said NHS Forth Valley.
