Restaurants and bars in Cornwall closing due to Covid surge

The Front, Falmouth

One of the first places to close its doors was The Front in Falmouth.

It was reported last Friday, the first day of the G7 Summit, whose media were being hosted in the town, that the pub decided to close its doors after the confirmation that a member of staff had tested positive.

As a result the pub said that it would now be closed until this Saturday.

In a post on its Facebook page it explained: “Unfortunately we have had to close the pub as one of our staff members has been confirmed positive for Covid. We made the decision to close on Wednesday when they developed symptoms.”

“We’re wishing them all the best and a speedy recovery while self-isolating.

“We thank you all for your continued support at the pub and we will reopen when we are safe to do so. The date for reopening is Saturday, 19th June.

“So we will see you then. Where our great selection of beer will be flowing once again! Stay safe and we will see you all very soon.”
