A member of staff at KFC in Glastonbury is self-isolating at home after testing positive for coronavirus earlier this week.

The restaurant was closed for a deep clean following the positive test, but no one else who works there has shown any symptoms.

A KFC spokesperson said: “A team member at our Wirral Park Road restaurant tested positive for coronavirus on Tuesday (July 28).

"They’re currently self-isolating at home, in line with the government regulations - and it goes without saying we’re wishing them a full and speedy recovery.

"Although no one else has reported any symptoms, a number of our other team members who had been in contact have been advised to get tested – and they’re currently not working at the restaurant, which has since been closed for a thorough sanitising and cleaning.

"This is an isolated incident and we’re doing all we can to support our teams, including following all the necessary guidance to maintain a safe, clean environment for both our teams and guests.”
