Following the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus in the UK, Public Health England produced a guide for health care providers and workers.

All staff who has travelled to or transited through a specified country or area and has returned to the UK in the past 14 days, are asked to notify their line manager and if necessary self-isolate depending on their location.

An NNUH spokesman said: "We are very closely following the Public Health England guidance for health care workers about coronavirus.

"Our two members of staff are symptom free but as a precautionary measure they are self isolating at home."

Anybody concerned about coronavirus, should go to NHS 111 online for more information.
