The number of Covid cases in Gibraltar has risen to 79 and, after positive cases found in ERS, no visitors will be allowed into Mount Alvernia and John Mackintosh Home.
The rise has seen 45 cases detected in four days, including a mix of residents, visitors and cross-frontier workers.
Over the weekend, the Gibraltar Government announced visits to Mount Alvernia and John Mackintosh Home have stopped immediately as a precautionary measure due to a resident and a member of staff respectively testing positive for Covid-19.
“This difficult decision has been carefully considered by clinical professionals following Public Health advice,” a statement from No.6 Convent Place said.
“The Elderly Residential Services management wish to thank all those whose advice and hard work has ensured that the right measures have been in place to catch this case at the earliest possible opportunity and would also like to take this opportunity to thank residents, their families and friends for their patience and understanding.”
