Two members of hospital staff are self-isolating after returning from abroad.

Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital said the staff are symptom free but remain at home as a precautionary measure.

The members of staff have not been to work and are following guidance.

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.
