Jus a few hours after taking part in a phone-in at LBC this morning (14 September), Sir Keir Starmer announced he’s going into self-isolation after he’d been told a member of his household started showing symptoms of Covid.
The Labour Leader was at the station’s Westminster studios with Nick Ferrari to take part in the monthly half-hour phone-in, Call Keir, where he answers questions from callers.
It’s not known which member of his household has come down with the symptoms, but a Labour spokesperson says they have had a test for the virus. Sir Keir is self-isolating in line with NHS guidelines to wait for the results and further medical advice.
The Labour Party has informed LBC of the situation and although Keir and Ferrari were in the studio together, there was a distance between them. There’s been no announcement as to whether Nick Ferrari or any other staff will need to quarantine.
