Travel Republic is to reopen its office in Kingston having undergone two deep cleans after a member of staff tested positive for coronavirus.

The OTA evacuated its office earlier on Tuesday after the member of staff was confirmed to have the virus on Monday.

A spokesman said: “Following liaison with Public Health England, Travel Republic will be reopening its Norbiton offices on 4th March 2020.

“Two full deep clean cycles of the building have been completed during today. Staff have been provided with guidance concerning continued monitoring of their personal health, and measures have been imposed across our whole organisation to ensure hygiene best practice is followed.

“We are fortunate that our business continuity plan enabled Travel Republic to operate as normal during this period, but we are looking forward to welcoming everyone back to the office tomorrow. We want to thank our partners across the trade for their support today.”

Travel Republic said the member of staff who had tested positive was now receiving medical attention.
