Four members of the Pontifical Swiss Guard tested positive for the coronavirus over the weekend. They show symptoms of Covid-19 and are currently in isolation, Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni announced on Monday.
These cases are in addition to three other people who have tested positive in recent weeks, he added. Authorities are seeking to determine who may have been in contact with those infected. In the meantime, all Swiss guards, on duty or not, will have to wear a mask, inside and outside, and observe the prescribed sanitary measures, adds Mr. Bruni.
