The Mosset Tavern, which was closed voluntarily on Saturday after a staff member tested positive for Covid-19, is preparing to re-open on Tuesday.
Owner Gordon Brailsford has said the entire building has been deep cleaned by a specialist firm and every other staff member and their close contacts had tested negative since the closure. In an update on Facebook, he assured members of openness and honesty as he planned to offer a limited service on re-opening.
Gordon said: “Naturally being a busy establishment guests dining with us have been contacting us to see whether they are at risk and right now NHS track and trace are not concerned for guests at this time due to our robust measures.
“If this changes we’ll be open and honest. It may come as some comfort knowing that the rest of the team including close contacts have been tested negative for Covid-19 but continue to isolate.
Deep cleaned and sanitised
“Going forward we are a putting together a talented team made up of staff with no connection with this incident.
“The building has been deep cleaned and every square inch sanitised by a specialist firm. We aim to be open again tomorrow from 10am until 6pm and will offer these opening times whilst the remainder of the team isolate.”
He thanked the hundreds of people who had left messages of positive support.
Home delivery and the night-time beer garden will stay closed until further notice.
