Keir Starmer self-isolating after staff member tests positive for Covid

Labor leader Sir Keir Starmer isolates himself after a member of his private office tests positive for the coronavirus.

A spokesman for the Labor leader said he had shown no symptoms of Covid-19 but would work from home in accordance with government regulations.

“This afternoon, Keir Starmer was advised to isolate himself after an employee at his private office tested positive for the coronavirus,” the spokesman said.

“Keir is doing well and is showing no symptoms. He will now work from home. “

Sir Keir will reportedly stay at home until December 16 – 14 days after he last got in touch with the employee in question last Tuesday.

This is the second time he has to isolate himself.

In September, Sir Keir went into quarantine when one of his children developed possible symptoms of the disease, so a test came negative two days later.
