Hythe Town Council staff laid low by Covid-19

Late Sunday we informed you that a member of  staff from Hythe Town Council (HTC) had tested positive for Covid-19.

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.

Anyone who has attended the Hythe Town Council office in the last 14 days, we recommend if you show any symptoms common to Covid-19 you get tested at the earliest opportunity.

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.
