By timesecholife on in All News, Latest News

A CARE HOME in the Moorlands has confirmed that one of its residents is being treated in hospital after testing positive for coronavirus (COVID-19). A spokesman for Church Terrace Care Home in Cheadle stated that the home is “clear and there are no symptoms of the virus in residents or staff.” They also said that all standard precautions have been taken to prevent development.

Church Terrace Care Home manager Lesley Hughes confirmed yesterday (Tuesday, March 17) that the resident who tested positive for the virus is currently in Royal Stoke University Hospital.

She told the Times and Echo: “I can confirm that the home is clear and there are no symptoms of the virus in residents or staff.

“There is one resident in hospital who has been tested positive for the condition but it is unclear where it was acquired.

“All standard precautions are being followed to prevent this situation.”

Meanwhile, JCB confirmed that one of its employees was also being cared for in hospital after contracting coronavirus.

A JCB Spokesperson said: “A Rocester-based JCB employee has contracted Coronavirus (COVID-19) and is currently being cared for in hospital.

“This is obviously very difficult news for the employee and family and friends.

“Following the press conference chaired by the Prime Minister yesterday (Monday), JCB is assessing how it might best respond to the new guidance, particularly in relation to home working.”
