A third person from Gloucestershire has tested positive for the coronavirus.

The Government has confirmed a third case of the virus in the county.

It is not yet known where they contracted the virus, or where in Gloucestershire they are located.

It comes after two Tetbury residents contracted the virus last weekend, one of which was a staff member at St Mary’s Primary School.

Cllr Joe Harris said: “Cotswold District Council is working closely with our partners at Public Health England and the county council to safeguard the health of residents here in the district and I am confident that our tried and tested plans for dealing with emergencies mean that everything that can be done is happening.

“I’d like to ask for the support of everyone here in the Cotswolds in making sure everyone does their bit to help.

“Together we can make sure that everyone knows the importance of good hygiene – regular hand washing and covering your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough – as well as where to go for the most up-to-date advice.

“If you have recently been to one of the affected areas and have symptoms including a cough, high temperature or shortness of breath, you should phone the NHS 111 helpline for further advice straight away – please don’t go to your doctor or a hospital.”
