Butlin's confirms positive Covid-19 cases among staff at one of its UK resorts

A major UK holiday park has confirmed some of its staff have tested positive for Covid.

Four members of staff at Butlin’s in Skegness have tested positive at the resort, according to Lincolnshire Live.

Concerns regarding the positive cases were expressed by a worker to the website anonymously.

They said they were concerned as the resort had remained open and they felt the health of staff members and guests was being placed at risk.

However, a spokesperson for Butlin’s said all venues have been subject to ‘robust and frequent’ cleaning routines.

A spokesperson for Butlin’s said: “We can confirm that four team members have tested positive for coronavirus at our Skegness resort.

“We took immediate steps to isolate them upon symptoms being reported, in line with government guidance and our Covid safe protocols.

“We have fully complied with all the necessary NHS Test and protocol procedures and in line with track and trace requirements, we have also isolated a number of our team they could have come into contact with.

“We have had no further cases reported and the venues have been subject to robust and frequent cleaning routines.

“The safety and welfare of our team and guests is of the utmost importance to us and we’d like to reassure all guests that we have strict protocols covering hygiene, social distancing and PPE firmly in place to protect both our guests and team.”.
