A church in Devon has been closed after a parishioner was diagnosed with coronavirus, the Church of England have confirmed.
The churchgoer tested positive for Covid-19 after attending the Holy Communion service at St Mary's Church in the town of Churston Ferrers on Sunday.
On Friday, the church was temporarily closed for a deep clean while members of the congregation have been told to contact Public Health England for advice.
Other parishioners who might feel unwell, have a cough, a high temperature or are short of breath have been instructed to phone NHS 111.
The Church of England said it was offering "full support" to those involved.
A spokeswoman said: "The coronavirus situation is being kept under continual review by the Church of England nationally and all those with responsibility for church worship and activities in the Diocese of Exeter are being asked to regularly check the official guidance available on the Church of England website."
The spokeswoman said the Reverend Professor Gina Radford, a vicar in South Devon who was deputy chief medical officer for England until 2019, had been advising the Church of England on its coronavirus guidance.
Rev Radford said: "We, as a church, are here to support people both spiritually and practically, to listen to concerns if they are worried and to affirm and confirm the official health guidance."
The announcement followed a pupil from the nearby Churston Ferrers grammar school tested positive for the virus on Monday.
