New Coronavirus Case

A healthcare worker at University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust (UHSFT) has tested positive for coronavirus.

The surgical high dependency unit, where the person worked a single nightshift on Friday, has been temporarily closed to new admissions as a result.

The worker is self-isolating at home.

A statement on the UHSFT’s website said: “The small number of patients and staff who came into close contact with this individual have been informed and will be appropriately isolated.

“The surgical high dependency unit is temporarily closed to new admissions. Any patient affected by the temporary closure will be contacted directly.

“The trust is following Public Health England and NHS guidance in respect of the virus and all other services are operating normally.

“Patients and staff should continue to attend appointments normally and come into work unless advised not to.”
