The home is now shut to all non-essential visitors and the care home emphasised it had "robust" infection control procedures in place. 

A spokeswoman for the home said: “Following a small number of colleagues testing positive, we are taking the necessary precautions to minimise the risk of transmission to other colleagues and residents.

"This includes continuing to implement our robust infection control measures and closing the home to non-essential visitors. As a precaution, all residents are self-isolating. The affected colleagues began isolating immediately following the positive result, and we wish them all a speedy recovery.
