Responding to questions from journalists, the Director of the Holy See Press Office, Matteo Bruni, said four positive cases of the coronavirus were discovered over the weekend among the members of the Swiss Guard.
At present, Bruni explained, they “have symptoms, and are all in isolation.”
Currently, he continued, “the necessary checks are being carried out among those who may have been in direct contact with them.”
“In the meantime, according to instructions issued last week by the Governorate of the Vatican City State, all the guards, whether on duty or not, wear masks, both outdoors and indoors, and observe the prescribed health measures.”
The Press Office Director added that the cases of the four guards are in addition to “three other positive cases found in recent weeks among residents and citizens of the State, all with mild symptoms and for which all the necessary measures of isolation at home and verification of the persons involved have been observed.”
