Stanley pub customers test positive

After the shock of the outbreak in Stanley Care Homes, the town has again been hit by coronavirus, as positive tests have been linked to the Empire Club and some other nearby pubs and clubs. Customers who were there between Sunday 9th and Tuesday 11th have been asked to isolate for 14 days. NHS test and trace is working hard to find the suspected 100 people who may have been in these premises at the time.1
