A third patient has tested negative for coronavirus having been quarantined after attending a GP surgery in Bury St Edmunds.
The patient entered the Victoria Surgery in Bury St Edmunds yesterday at around 5.30pm.
The surgery - which looks after 10,000 patients, according to the NHS website - was closed and a deep clean has been carried out.
It has reopened again this morning.
The person has become the third to test negative after two patients who had entered GP surgeries in Bacton and Capel St Mary were found not to have coronavirus.

As of Thursday, 7,132 people have been tested for the virus across the UK.
Of those tested, 19 have received positive results.
Travellers from Wuhan and Hubei province in China are still under strict direction to self-isolate if they have arrived in the country in the last 14 days.
Those doing so should stay indoors and avoid contact with other people as you would with the flu, call NHS 111 to inform them of your recent travel to the area and follow advice even if you have no symptoms of the virus.
Travellers from other parts of China and other specified areas - a full list can be found on the government's website - including northern Italy, that develop symptoms of a cough, fever or shortness of breath should do the same.
