An oil rig worker is being tested for coronavirus on a North Sea oil platform and is in isolation.

The worker came returned from a holiday in Thailand and presented “minor symptoms” and is being treated by a medic on the Tern Alpha platform off Shetland.

A spokesperson for Platform operator Taqa said, “A member of crew on board our Tern Alpha platform has presented with minor symptoms after returning recently from holiday in Thailand.

“The individual is being attended to by the medic on board the platform and as a precaution he is remaining separated from the rest of the crew until the results of tests are known.

“Both the individual and Taqa continue to take the appropriate actions and precautions in line with the UK government guidelines.

“Taqa is working closely with the relevant authorities and has put in place travel restrictions to its offshore platforms by individuals who have travelled recently to countries identified by the UK government.”
