A second staff member has tested positive for coronavirus at a prison in East Dunbartonshire.
NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (NHSGGC) confirmed the case at Low Moss prison on the outskirts of Bishopbriggs late on Wednesday.
It comes a week after the Scottish Prison Service (SPS) said another member of staff had tested positive for Covid-19 and was self-isolating.
As a result of the first case, 50 other people were identified as possible close contacts.
A problem assessment group (PAG) met on Tuesday with representatives from the NHS, the SPS, Health Protection Scotland and East Dunbartonshire Council.
NHSGGC’s Dr Gillian Penrice, who chaired the PAG, said: “All relevant public health measures are in place and myself and our Public Health Team are working with SPS to manage and monitor the situation.”
A spokesperson for SPS also said: “We are taking appropriate measures to respond to the current situation at Low Moss.
“We are working with NHSGGC to ensure that all the required health advice and monitoring measures are in place.”
