Customers who have visited Armando’s restaurant in Redcar between 19 and 22 August are being urged to self-isolate after two members of staff have tested positive for Covid-19.
On Monday (24 August), the restaurant took the decision to temporarily close its premises after the team members began showing symptoms of the virus.
Since the closure, both tests have come back as positive.
As a precautionary measure, the Council is making a public appeal for those who were in the restaurant between 19 and 22 August to self-isolate for 14 days from their last attendance at the restaurant. Self-isolation means staying at home: do not go to work, school, or public areas, and do not use public transport or taxis. You must not go outside even to buy food or other essentials, and any exercise must be taken within your home.
Anyone who develops symptoms should self-isolate and book a test. The symptoms of coronavirus are a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, or a loss or change to sense of smell or taste.
We’re being extra cautious by making this appeal but safety comes first.
