Two more pubs  shut over coronavirus cases just days after reopening

Two further UK pubs have shut for a deep clean after positive coronavirus cases.

The two drinking spots, both situated in Wakefield, in West Yorkshire, have shuttered just days after being allowed to re-open.

Saturday, July 4, saw pubs open across the country, with customers given the green light to head inside after a government announcement.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson gave the drinking spots across the country permission to re-open, alongside hotels, restaurants, bars and cafes.

But the two boozers in Ackworth are believed to have closed days after reopening.

It is reported a member of staff at The Boot and Shoe tested positive for the virus, according to media reports.

It follows The Lighthouse Kitchen & Carvery in Burnham-on-Sea announcing a closure on Monday, alongside The Fox and Hounds, in Batley, in West Yorkshire.

The Village Home Pub in Alverstoke, Hampshire has also shut.

The Village Home posted: “We have had a case of Coronavirus in the pub which means that some of us are in isolation.

“The pub is now shut but all being well will open again on Saturday.

“Anyone who was in the pub over the weekend there is no need to isolate unless you show symptoms or are contacted direct by the trace group. Thank you and hope to see you soon.”
