UK lottery group Camelot has temporarily closed their head office after one of its employees was diagnosed as having coronavirus (Covid-19).
The employee had recently traveled to Thailand, returning to the UK and working from the office, located in Watford. After testing positive they are now recovering and are being given access to medical care. Camelot has decided to close the office as a precautionary measure. The company is deep cleaning the office to disinfect anything that the employee touched.
Any Camelot employee who interacted with the employee is being urged to seek advice by calling the NHS helpline.
Commenting on the closure a Camelot spokesman said, "We hope to re-open the office as soon as possible. However, many colleagues have the ability to work from home, and The National Lottery will operate as normal and draws will happen as planned."
"Our priority is the health of our employees and we are keeping them fully informed of developments, as well as providing them with advice in relation to coronavirus."
