Coronavirus shuts café in Emersons Green

A staff member at Avenue Café in Emersons Green has tested positive for COVID-19.

The café closed on Saturday and will not reopen until Wednesday 21st October.

In a message on their Facebook today the café said: “One of our staff members has tested positive after having mild symptoms – they are well and recovering at home. We made the right decision in our swift action to close the café and all staff are self-isolating following government guidelines.

“If you signed in with the Track and Trace app, you would have already been/will be notified as to whether or not you may need to self-isolate. We’re still waiting for the Local Authority to advise us on the procedure for those who signed in manually in the book.”
