It now transpires a further member of staff has also tested positive. The remaining HTC staff have been notified by NHS England to self isolate.
However, a part time member of staff had not been informed of the outbreak. This needs to be rectified as soon as possible.
We understand a deep clean of the Town Council offices will take place prior to the Town Clerk returning to the offices on Monday 2nd Nov.
You can only get a free NHS test if at least one of the following applies:
you have a high temperature
you have a new, continuous cough
you’ve lost your sense of smell or taste or it’s changed
you’ve been asked to by a local council
you’re taking part in a government pilot project
You can also get a test for someone you live with if they have symptoms.
Our thoughts go out to each of the staff and hope they shake off the virus and show no symptoms while in self isolation.
