A Liberation Group spokesman said no one had tested positive.

‘A few staff have gone for tests as a precautionary measure,’ he said.

On its Facebook page, the restaurant stated that the staff who felt unwell were advised by Public Health to get a Covid test and remain isolated until their results came through.

‘We care about our staff and all of our customers, so ultimately we agreed that closing the restaurant for the time being would be the responsible thing to do, in order to respect everyone’s safety.

It confirmed late last night that all the tests were negative and the business was able to reopen.

'We would like to thank the community for the outpouring of support we have received.'

Big events and gatherings are a concern for Public Health.

If a person attends a venue and later tests positive, the venue would be informed to ensure staff would be extra vigilant about any symptoms.

That could lead to venues being closed. However this is not what happened with Dix Neuf.

‘We haven’t had to close any establishments since the opening of the borders on 1 July,’ said director of Public Health Dr Nicola Brink.
