"All appropriate infection prevention and control measures have been put in place. Close contacts have been identified and given appropriate advice and support.

"We would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone they should continue to adhere to physical distancing guidelines, wear a face-covering when in enclosed spaces, clean your hands and surfaces regularly and immediately self-isolate and book a PCR test if you develop symptoms."
