Simpsons in Inverness has closed its café after 2 kitchen staff tested positive for Coronavirus. The rest of the garden centre remains open.
Simpsons has informed customers on Facebook, “Unfortunately a further member of our non-customer facing team has tested positive for COVID. We want to reassure everyone that we are following all guidance from the authorities, however we have made the decision to temporarily close the restaurant as a precautionary measure.”
Dr Tim Allison, director of public health with NHS Highland, told a local news source: “We appreciate that this will be causing anxiety within the local community but please be reassured that investigations so far have seen no evidence of wider community spread. There is currently no evidence that food is a source of coronavirus, Covid–19, and it is very unlikely it can be transmitted through the consumption of food.
