Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer is in self-isolation for the second time after a member of staff tested positive for Covid-19.
Sir Keir, 58, isolated last September when one of his children showed symptoms – later tested as negative.
A spokesperson for Sir Keir said:
“This afternoon, Keir Starmer was advised to self-isolate after a member of his private office staff tested positive for the coronavirus.
“Keir is well and not showing any symptoms.
“He will now be working from home.”
Sir Keir will remain in isolation under December 16th.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson was forced into self-isolation for the second time last month.
He’d had a meeting with an MP who later tested positive.
At the start of the pandemic Mr Johnson was seriously hit by Covid-19 and spent time in an intensive care unit.
