Boris Johnson has been forced to self-isolate after coming into contact with an MP who later tested positive for coronavirus.
The Prime Minister is not experiencing symptoms, but started self-isolating after being contacted by NHS Test and Trace.
The PM, who was admitted to intensive care after getting COVID-19 in April, said he would continue to work from Number 10.
A spokesman said: “The Prime Minister has today been notified by NHS Test and Trace that he is required to self-isolate as a contact of someone who has tested positive for Covid-19.
“The Prime Minister will follow the rules and is self-isolating.
“He will carry on working from Downing Street, including on leading the Government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
“The PM is well and does not have any symptoms of Covid-19.”
