Cockermouth pub-goers urged to get a Covid-19 test as soon as possible

SHARE:

People who visited a pub in Cockermouth last weekend are being advised to get tested for COVID-19, as they may have come into contact with someone who subsequently tested positive.

As a precaution anyone attending The Huntsman pub on Friday 21 August from 10pm onwards is now being advised to get tested for COVID-19.

People can find more information about testing locations in the county and how to book here

Local testing is available over the Bank Holiday weekend at:

- Egremont (RUFC), 29 August. 

- Bleach Green, Egremont, CA22 2NL. 

- Lillyhall, 30 and 31 August. 

County Council Highways Depot Parking Services, 1 Joseph Noble Rd, Workington, CA14 4JX

Any NHS staff affected are reminded to seek testing via their employer.

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

“In a situation like this it is really important that people take action, it only needs a few people to spread infection to many more. Getting tested is quick and easy and will help us ensure we keep things under control.

“I’d remind anyone heading out over the weekend that the current Government guidance is that people should not be socialising in groups of more than two households, and that people should not interact with other groups, including in pubs. It’s also important to give accurate contact details when you visit pubs and restaurants and continue to follow the simple advice of making space and washing hands regularly.”

“And if you are contacted for Track and Trace purposes, it is really important that you provide accurate details of your contacts and any premises you may have visited to help prevent the spread of the virus.”
