A Worle pub has reopened after a staff member tested positive for coronavirus.

The Nut Tree closed on Wednesday after a back of house team member had tested positive for the virus.

The staff member had not been in direct contact with customers.

A deep clean of the public house, in Ebdon Road, was undertaken and the pub reopened over the weekend.

Its spokesman said: “We have received notification that member of our back of house team has been confirmed as Covid positive, this staff member has since been in isolation.

“We’ve scrubbed and cleaned, fogged and polished from cutlery to carpets and gantries to glasses and everything in between.

“We’re pleased to say we have now reopened and the member of our team is doing well.
