Covid statement from the Lighthouse Inn, Walcott, 16 October 2020
We have today been informed that a part time student member of our waiting staff has been tested positive for Covid-19. She has not been at work for the past 8 days. A number of other student members of staff who attend the same college have been advised to self-isolate but to our knowledge no further members of staff have been tested positive or displayed any symptoms. We are currently in the process of informing all customers who were in the pub on the last day the affected member of staff was at work. This applies to customers who did not have the NHS app and were therefore asked to leave contact details. We take all our Covid procedures very seriously. All staff are temperature checked at the start of each shift. All front of house staff who come into contact with customers wear face coverings at all times and wash hands frequently throughout their shift. The whole pub is deep cleaned every morning and we are now closing the pub for an hour during the afternoon for a further deep clean prior to evening service. The pub is also deep cleaned every evening after closing. Our toilets are cleaned regularly throughout the day and evening. All our tables and menus are thoroughly sanitised with anti-bacterial cleaner in between every customer.We are monitoring the situation daily and will always take whatever action is necessary to keep our staff and customers safe.
Watch out for our fabulous Christmas Menu, coming soon!
