A Cotswolds hotel is closed after three staff experienced Covid-19 symptoms.
The White Hart Royal Hotel, on Moreton-in-Marsh High Street, says it shut on Friday (October 16) “in the interests of protecting our guests and team members”.
The Coaching Inn Group, which owns the hotel, said: “We can confirm that leading to this, three of our team members suffered Covid symptoms and as a precautionary measure, we decided to close for five days.
“This was to enable full testing of all our team members and a full deep sanitation of the inn.
“We are pleased to say we will be re-opening on Thursday, October 22, and it will be business as normal.”

A hotel spokeswoman added: “We have closed as a precaution but not anything to do with anyone testing positive. A deep clean is being done.”
