Coronavirus COVID-19

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

(Updated 24th August 2020)

The Isle of Canna is a small and remote community of 19 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 may come to Canna, we ask that you pay particular attention to hand hygiene and social distancing.
