Coronavirus COVID-19

The Isle of Canna’s community response to COVID-19

(Updated 25th May 2021)

The Isle of Canna is a small and remote community of 18 people. We have few facilities, are distant from medical support and have elderly and vulnerable residents.

During the current pandemic, we continue to work together as a community to ensure our own health and wellbeing, and that of visitors too, as we move through to the next phase.

We still require your help to do this and whilst visitors are welcome, we ask that you pay particular attention to hand hygiene and social distancing.
