Orkney Islands Council is experiencing disruption to two of its main internet connections.
OIC staff working remotely due to the Covid-19 lockdown are unaffected, but access to services based at the Council’s School Place headquarters is likely to be disrupted.
If you experience problems contacting the Council by email, please trying phoning 01856 873535 during office hours instead.
The problem occurred after an unsuccessful attempt by the Council’s external internet provider to replace faulty equipment in Kirkwall and is affecting many OIC sites.
We are liaising with the internet provider and will seek to provide further updates when they are available.
