A spokesman at The Angel, Loddon, said it was the responsible decision to take and that the team member had isolated immediately.

A few team members who worked in close proximity to the worker have been contacted via the NHS App to say they also have to isolate.

The spokesman said: “We feel it will be irresponsible to keep the pub open in the knowledge that someone in our building has had it.

“So reluctantly we will close the pub immediately for approximately 12 days.

“We have been abiding by all the guidelines such as sticking to two metres, and carrying out deep and professional cleaning.

“The virus came from an outside source from someone who caught it in a school and who then passed it on to the kitchen worker.”
