‘The home’s owners HC-ONE had acknowledged staff shortages at the home during the pandemic and said they had been forced to bring in additional workers from as far afield as the South of England.’

I don’t have the owners’ exact words but that’s from the BBC so we can surely trust it’s accurate.

Only two days ago they were trying to blame the locals.

The infection rate in Highland region is 1 per 1000 but probably most cases would be in the only city, Inverness. We can only speculate on the level on the island but the notion that it had spread from the locals into the home seems ludicrous.

Did the owners refuse to pay for testing of the incoming staff or is the First Minister to blame for not helping them out, what with them being a bit ‘strapped’, after having to pay their investors £45 million?
