A NORTH Yorkshire pub has closed after one of its customers tested positive for coronavirus.

The Black Horse pub in Tollerton, near Easingwold, closed on July 30.

In a Facebook statement, it said: "We have worked hard to put all the measures in place to keep our staff and customers safe; however we have been informed that a customer who is now COVID positive visited our premises on Thursday (July 30).

“A staff member has since shown symptoms and are now self-isolating for the mandatory period. We have taken the decision to temporarily close the pub as a result and a deep clean has taken place.

“We have followed Government guidelines in terms of collecting customer contact details and the NHS Test & Trace team will be in touch with the relevant customers.

“We will reopen the premises when it is safe to do so. Please keep an eye on our social media for any updates. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.”
