Alex Easton MLA has taken ill with Covid last Wednesday; he was tested positive on Thursday and has gone into self Isolation immediately.

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

“Late on Wednesday I began feeling extremely unwell with a headache, fever and a cough. I booked a test for Thursday and received a positive result. My priority is to keep those around me safe including the public and friends and family so I will be isolating until the following Thursday as instructed, and cancelled all my meetings, appointments and attending the NI Assembly.”

“This has been more difficult to get over than I could have imagined and I have been forced into my bed, even with the vaccination this has been tough and I dread to think what it would be like having not taken the vaccination. Fortunately I am starting to recover and thank those who have sent me kind wishes for a speedy recovery, they are very much appreciated!”

“This virus is still very much with us and spreads so easily It’s a frightening reality, and I would urge everyone to please follow the public health guidelines, to maintain social distancing, continuing washing hands and to get tested if you show any symptoms at all.”
