A SEDGEMOOR restaurant will be closed for 14 days after one of its staff members tested positive for Covid-19.

The Table Eight Indian Restaurant issued an announcement on social media yesterday (Thursday, September 17) to confirm the news.

It means the popular eatery on Church Street was forced to close with immediate effect so that the rest of the staff could be tested and a thorough deep clean could be carried out in the restaurant and kitchen area.

The statement on the Table Eight Indian Restaurant Facebook page says: "We are talking to the government to find out everything we need to do and put in place but we suggest if you have visited our takeaway and been in close contact with any of our staff (which we are sure would be few as we have had 90 per cent of our customers following the guidelines) then we advise you to get yourself tested and self isolate for the recommended 14 days.

"Again we are sorry we have had to post this but we are letting you know as soon as we know.

"We will be closed for 14 days and will keep everyone updated."
