“A Tesco spokesperson said, “A small number of colleagues have tested positive for Covid-19 in our Glasgow Maryhill Extra store.

More than 60,000 confirmed cases every day in the United Kingdom, the first time since the pandemic started,

“Their close contacts were told.

Our top priority is the welfare of our staff, clients and suppliers and we collaborate with local health authorities, meeting all government directives and taking the necessary precautions.

“We have extensive measures in place across our stores to ensure everyone’s safety, including safety screens at every checkout, social distancing signs and regular cleaning.”
