Tesco Helston told the Packet that three members of staff had tested positive for Covid-19.

As a result a "small number" of colleagues at the store were now self-isolating.

In a statement this evening a Tesco spokesperson said: “A small number of colleagues at our Helston Superstore are self-isolating after three colleagues tested positive for Covid-19.

"The safety of our colleagues, customers and suppliers remains our number one priority and we are following all government guidance and taking the relevant precautions.

"We have extensive measures across all of our stores to help keep everyone safe, including protective screens at every checkout, social distancing signage and regular cleaning.”

It follows three cases of coronavirus being confirmed on yesterday's government 'cluster' map.

The map always runs a few days behind, meaning the cases represented on it yesterday were actually recorded between October 6 and Monday this week (October 12).

It is not known if these if the Tesco cases are the ones represented on the map or separate incidents.

In the past week there have also been coronavirus cases confirmed at the St Michael's Resort in Falmouth, Penryn Primary Academy and St Francis School in Falmouth.
