A city centre bar has temporarily closed in order to conduct a deep clean after a member of staff tested positive for COVID-19.

BrewDog in Merchant City said it was made aware this morning that a worker at their city centre venue tested positive for the virus. Their last shift was Sunday, 6 September. 

All other workers who came into contact with the employee to test positive are currently self-isolating in accordance with the Scottish Government guidelines.

A statement from bosses at the pub reads: "The bar has been deep cleaned nightly as part of our rigorous cleaning procedures, as well as santised in all common touchpoints every 15 minutes - as it has been since we reopened on 15th July.

"We have also arranged an anti-viral spray to be carried out today. We have yet to be contacted by NHS Test & Protect but are ready to cooperate with all relevant information.

"We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause for you and our incredible team."

Meanwhile, four members of staff at The Horseshoe on Drury Street and two workers from O'Neill's Grand Central on Union Street are currently self-isolating after a senior employee at The Horseshoe tested positive for the virus last week.
