Burnham-On-Sea’s Lighthouse pub – which has temporarily been closed for a week after a customer tested positive for Coronavirus last weekend – re-opened on Monday (July 13th).
The Lighthouse Inn in Highbridge Road had initially opened its doors on ‘Super Saturday’ (July 4th) when pubs across the country re-opened after being shut for three months during the Covid-19 lockdown.
But, after hearing that a customer had tested positive for Covid-19 on the Sunday, the pub’s manager Jess Green, pictured, took the decision to temporarily close to protect staff and customers. As one of the first pubs to do so, she attracted nationwide media attention.
Jess says a full deep clean of the pub has been completed and all its staff have all tested negative.
She says: “We would like to thank everyone for all the messages of support.”
“After following all guidelines we will be re-opening our doors on Monday 13th from 12pm. Hope to see you all.”
