COVID Update 16th July 2021
I'm sorry to say that two members of staff have tested positive for COVID-19. They both confirm that they have been in close contact socially with someone who has tested positive so the source is not the pub. They have not worked here since their positive test. Their test results have been reported to NHS England.
I have spoken with NHS England and our pubco about the response that we have put in place and been given the go ahead to remain open. Certain members of staff are self isolating as a precaution or because they have been in close contact and all members of staff that are coming in for a shift are required to bring a negative test with them or will be asked to do one here before they start work. The family here are also testing on a daily basis.
I strongly believe that these measures are satisfactory and have the support of the two relevant authorities on this. I also fully understand if you have personal concerns about coming to the pub for now. I'll keep you updated with any developments.
