Rumah reopens after coronavirus scare as staff test negative

29th August 2020

Rumah Bar and Kitchen on Weld Road has reopened after staff tested negative for coronavirus.

On Friday, the bar closed as a precaution and recommended customers from Tuesday and Wednesday take a Covid-19 test, after one staff member came into contact with someone who had contracted the virus.

However the owners have now confirmed that staff received the all clear.

On social media Rumah said: “Results are in and it’s negative. The member of staff who came into contact with an individual who tested positive for COVID-19 outside of Rumah has tested negative also and has been isolating since Wednesday.

“Rumah will reopen tomorrow [Saturday].

“We would like to thank all of you who have taken the time to understand the actions we have taken. To do nothing is not an excuse! Our responsibility is to keep everybody safe.
Have an amazing bank holiday wherever you go and we hope to see you all soon.”
