A Glasgow pub has been hit by coronavirus after a customer tested positive. The Swinton, on Swinton Road in Ballieston, said they tested all staff for the virus after a bettor told them the result of his test.

In a statement, the bar said all of its staff had tested negative and pointed to improved security measures.

Aberdeen has been put on lockdown after an increase in coronavirus cases linked to the city’s pubs – all boozers in the city were closed at 5 p.m. last night.

A group of 56 cashiers and some 28 bars in Granite City were affected.

A statement from the Swinton reads: “We would like to inform you all, as most of you know that we have been informed by someone who was on our premises that they have tested positive for the covid.

“This person was on vacation and did not self-quarantine when he returned. We have decided as a management not to wait for the official NHS phone call which can take days. We have tried to do what it takes to inform our customers!

“We have received so many positive comments and we thank you. We also receive negative feedback and negative feedback! ”

The statement adds that hand sanitizer stations are installed, floor markings, tracking and tracing and “constant” deep cleanings, among other measures.

He adds: “All of our staff have now been tested for Covid and all results have come back negative.

“We are also aware that there are other establishments that have had positive cases but choose not to report it.

“We made this decision to educate everyone and do our best to eliminate the spread.

“Let us also remember that someone has tested positive and we wish them a full recovery. We hope you all understand.

“Our priority is that everyone is aware and safe. ”

It is not known if the pub will remain open.

They have been contacted for further comments.
