When a customer of a Glasgow pub contacted them to let them know that he had tested positive for coronavirus they did the right thing and acted quickly.
Deciding not to wait for the NHS testing which could of taken days, they carried out their own track and trace service.
The management of the Swinton Arms in Glasgow decided to “act quickly” and “decided to do the right thing” by contacting all their customers with the information and testing all their staff, all of which have come back negative.
The pub also put a statement on their Facebook page stating that the customer had recently returned from holiday back to Scotland, although they said it was unsure if they had been holidaying in a country that was exempt from the quarantine laws for foreign arrivals.
The Swinton’s statement said that “We would like to update you all, as most of you are aware we have been informed by someone that was on our premises they have tested positive for covid. This person was on holiday and did not quarantine on their return. We decided as management that we would not await the official phone call from the NHS which can take days. We tried to do the right thing in letting our customers know” The pub have said that every precaution is being undertaken with hand sanitizers readily available, markings on floors for social distancing and constant deep cleans.
Aberdeen has also been put on lockdown as from 5pm yesterday afternoon after the city saw a large rise in the cases of coronavirus linked to pubs. All such premises have been informed that they will be closed for at least seven days.
