The BBC reports that the flagship store has been put on alert after two shop workers contracted the virus. While one of the infected staff member developed symptoms in May and did not return to the store, the second worker tested positive last week and has had "minimal" contact with other staff and customers. Shoppers are being asked to be aware of any sign of developing symptoms, to stop the virus from spreading. The store remains open.

"We have not been notified of any new cases in the nine days since this matter came to light," a Topshop spokesperson told Drapers.
