Fourth confirmed COVID-19 case in Wiltshire

Published 13 March 2020

Tracy Daszkiewicz, Director of Public Health for Wiltshire Council, said: I can confirm that a fourth adult in Wiltshire has tested positive for coronavirus after returning from a trip to Thailand, and they have self-isolated. This means we still only have four cases of coronavirus in Wiltshire. 

Close contacts will be given health advice about symptoms and emergency contact details to use if they become unwell in the 14 days after contact with the confirmed cases. If you have not been contacted by Public Health England you do not need to take any action at this time. 

Good hygiene is the best prevention and there are some simple steps you can take to protect you and your family by washing your hands regularly and thoroughly and if you cough, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue. 

If you have recently been to one of the  affected areas (opens new window) and are feeling unwell, you should use the  NHS 111 online (opens new window)  coronavirus service or call NHS 111 for further advice straight away please don't go to your doctor or a hospital. There's lots of advice on how people can protect themselves online.
