B&Q at Longwell Green closes after two staff test positive for COVID-19

The Longwell Green branch of B&Q was closed for a deep clean today after two members of staff tested positive for COVID-19.

Signs outside the warehouse on the Gallagher Retail Park at Aldermoor Way say it is closed for the remainder of the day and there is an apology to customers for any inconvenience. The signs say that the store will resume trading from 7am tomorrow.

This afternoon a B&Q spokesperson told us: “We can confirm that our Longwell Green store is temporarily closed following two team members, who have recently been on shift, receiving a positive COVID-19 test result.

“Closing the store for deep cleaning is a precautionary measure and goes beyond government advice.”

Meanwhile it was reported at the weekend that 14 members of staff at a B&Q distribution centre in Swindon had tested positive for COVID-19.
