A public appeal has been launced asking people who visited three Carlisle pubs, The Turf, Lloyds Bar and The Museum Bar on specific dates in July to come forward for COVID-19 testing.

 

It comes after six positive coronavirus cases were identified among a group of people who visited those Carlisle pubs on these dates and also attended a local house party.

 

As a precaution, anyone attending the three pubs on the following specific dates is now being advised to be tested for COVID-19. They are:

 

  • The Turf, Carlisle – Thursday 9 July, Friday 10 July and Monday 13 July
  • Lloyds Bar, Carlisle – Saturday 11 July
  • The Museum, Carlisle – Monday 13 July

 

Testing is available in Carlisle at Brunton Park from Monday to Wednesday and in Penrith at the Rugby Club seven days a week. People can book a test at: https://www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test

 

Colleagues in Cumbria are also noting that testing continues to be provided daily until this weekend in either or Annan and Gretna.

 

Tests can be booked by visiting the website https://www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test

 

Anyone in Dumfries and Galloway who is concerned about symptoms should get advice through the www.nhsinform.scot/ website or by phoning NHS-111.

 

To help identify any possible new cases of coronavirus infection and help prevent wider spread we are encouraging any members of the public who have  symptoms of coronavirus (a cold or flu like illness – including a new cough, high temperature, or loss of smell) to arrange testing.
