Meon Valley Pub Re-opens after Coronavirus alert

A MEON Valley pub is open again following a temporary closure after a customer tested positive for Coronavirus.

The George and Falcon at Warnford said on Sunday that a customer who had visited on Saturday had the virus.

It said: “it is our understanding that they sat in the garden but travelled through the building to purchase drinks. We would suggest anyone that visited this evening from 6pm should isolate or get a Covid-19 test, as per government advice.”

The pub has now been deep cleaned and has now reopened.

The pub said: “We are back open. The pub has been deep cleaned and we have been given the all-clear by Winchester City Council to reopen.”

One local said: “This sort of thing must be a nightmare for people in the hospitality industry but the pub’s management have to be applauded for the swift and transparent way they dealt with it.”
