Italian restaurant Posillipo in Faversham closes after Covid affair
A popular Kent restaurant has been forced to close after a member of staff tested positive for Covid.
The bosses of the Italian chain Posillipo announced on Facebook that their restaurant Faversham had been temporarily closed.
In the message, which was released yesterday morning, they said the doors to the Belvedere Road company would remain locked until further notice.
They said: ‘Due to a member of staff testing positive for Covid-19, we are now closed in Faversham until further notice.
“Sorry for the inconvenience.”
Posillipo’s Broadstairs and Canterbury restaurants continue to operate as usual.
It comes as the Wetherspoon pub, the Golden Lion in Rochester High Street, cut its trading hours, after a Covid-19 outbreak among employees.
Six staff members have contracted the virus, while 11 others are isolating themselves.
Wetherspoon spokesman Eddie Gershon told KentOnline: “Given the number of staff temporarily unavailable for work, the pub will be operating at reduced capacity this week and the kitchen will operate at reduced opening hours of 9am at 21h.
“Normal business will resume as soon as possible when the isolating staff can return to work.”
