A PUB shut after a visitor tested positive for coronavirus.

Village in Islingword Road, Brighton, alerted customers to the case on Friday.

The pub’s manager said the person with the virus had visited from 11am until 11.45am on Monday last week, and advised anyone who visited the pub within 72 hours of that time to get a Covid-19 test.

He said staff would be tested and the pub would be closed “for the next few days” – until the results come back.

In a Facebook post on Friday, he wrote: “I know some pubs have had the same but stayed open, but we don’t feel comfortable doing that.”

He added: “We’ll have professional cleaners coming in to deep clean just to be super safe. I’m so sad to be closing but I think it’s the right thing to do. We’ll let you know when we are reopening and hopefully it’s sooner rather than later.”

Village was contacted for comment.
