We were on the beach when a tannoy announcement was made saying the hotel is on lockdown after one of the guests had a confirmed case of coronavirus.

We have been told to stay in our rooms and haven't had any more information.

We're meant to go home on Tuesday, but now we are worried about our travel plans
