Coronavirus outbreak at Shropshire caravan park confirmed

Twenty-one new cases of Covid-19 have been identified at the site in Craven Arms

The council fears the number of cases at the site, which is in the town of Craven Arms, will continue to rise before infection control measures start to take effect.

All residents at the site who have come into contact with one of the people who have tested positive have been asked to self-isolate with their households for 14 days.

The 21 people who tested positive for coronavirus were asked to self-isolate for at least seven days from the time they started showing symptoms or from when they received their positive test result.

A testing centre has now been set up on a nearby business park, and everyone living on the site has been offered a test.

The centre will be open for the next two weeks between 10.30am and 3.30pm and those living nearby can book a test online via NHS Test and Trace or by ringing 119.

A playground close to the caravan park has also been closed to help reduce social contact and the risk of transmission.
