WORKERS that went into isolation after a coronavirus outbreak at a farm near Evesham have now come back with negative results.

Worcestershire County Council worked with Public Health England (PHE) to support Evesham Vale Growers Limited after the outbreak that took place on the Blackminster farm last month.

Dr Kathryn Cobain, Director of Public Health, said workers were re-swabbed on August 7 - routine practise at the end of a 14 day isolation period to check if there were any new cases in the incubation period.

Dr Cobain said: "All of those tested received negative results.

"Workers will start to return to work under guidance from Public Health. Alongside existing measures, EVG have introduced additional stringent practices in the workplace and for those living on site, to ensure they can live and work in a COVID secure environment.

"We would like to thank the management and staff at EVG for working with us to quickly contain and manage the outbreak, which has now allowed staff and the business to begin to return to normal."
