COVID -19 outbreak closes hotel hosting G7 summit delegation
A hotel, which British media reported was being used by members of Germany's delegation to a Group of Seven summit in England, has closed because members of staff tested positive for COVID -19, its owners said on Thursday.
Among the guests were security staff for the German delegation and a media team working for a U.S. broadcaster, Sky News reported."Following extensive discussions over the last few days with PHE (Public Health England) and Cornwall Council, we have taken the decision to fully close the hotel," said a spokesperson for the owners, St Austell Brewery.
"We fully appreciate the inconvenience given the limited accommodation options available in the area at the moment but the safety and security of our team and guests is our upmost priority."The spokesperson said the hotel would reopen once a full COVID-19 deep clean had taken place and there were enough staff to run it.
