Sky office in Cardiff closes after worker is diagnosed with coronavirus

Sky's Cardiff contact centre has been closed after a worker was diagnosed with coronavirus.

Sky said the staff member was self-isolating at home and the centre, which is located in the city's Capital Quarter, was expected to reopen on Thursday following a deep clean.

A spokesperson from Sky said: “Protecting our people is – and always will be – our top priority and so we are closing the contact centre today and sending everyone home as a precaution.

"We’re contacting anyone who has been in contact with our colleague and the centre itself will be deep cleaned before re-opening on Thursday.”

373 people across the UK have so far been confirmed as testing positive for the virus, including six in Wales.

On Monday evening a man in his early 80s became the sixth person in the UK to die after contracting the virus.

Meanwhile, Italy is experiencing its first day under lockdown, after the country's Prime Minister extended restrictions imposed in the north to the entire nation as the number of deaths and cases of Covid-19 continued to soar.

Britons are being warned against "all but essential travel" to the country following a rise in Covid-19 cases. A number of airlines cancelled flights to and from Italy on Tuesday as the travel advisory came into force.
