Urgent appeal issued for Carlisle drinkers to be tested for Coronavirus


Cumbria County Council are urgently asking people to get tested for Coronavirus if they visited a selection of pubs in the City. 

Local contact tracers have established links between a group of people who visited the pubs as well as attending a local house party and who have since tested positive.

The venue / dates are:

The Turf – Thursday 9 July, Friday 10 July and Sunday 12 July

Lloyds Bar – Saturday 11 July

The Museum – Monday 13 July

A spokesperson said, "If you test positive contact our COVID-19 call centre on 0800 783 1968."

Testing is available in Carlisle at Brunton Park from Monday to Wednesday, and in Penrith at the Rugby Club, seven days a week. 

People can book a test at:

Testing is also available in Annan and Gretna. Tests can be booked at:

Colin Cox, Cumbria’s Director of Public Health, said:

“This was always the risk as lockdown restrictions eased. We now have a situation where the virus has been passing between people in the community and this is something we do not want. To keep our communities safe we need people to take this seriously and follow the guidance.

“People may think that six positive cases is not many, but once you start to map out who those six have been in contact with, then the number of potential contacts rapidly increases. To help us get on top of the situation we’re asking people who were at these pubs to get tested, and if they are positive then to get in touch with the local Cumbria County Council COVID-19 call centre on 0800 783 1968 so they can ensure people get the advice they need and their contacts can be traced.

“Outbreaks like this are going to happen if people don’t take the right precautions. Only by the public following the Public Health advice will we keep the virus in check.”
