Wigton takeaway customers urged to get tested for COVID-19

Anyone who may have visited Wigton’s Shuhag Restaurant between Monday 9th November and Tuesday 18th November is being urged by Cumbria County Council’s Public Health team to get a test, even if they do not have symptoms of coronavirus.

Tests should be booked as soon as possible at nhs.uk/coronavirus or by calling 119. Home test kits can also be ordered by people who cannot get to a test site.

The restaurant was issued with a fixed penalty notice for breaching covid regulations on Friday, however, after a follow-up visit by public health officials as well as Cumbria Police yesterday (Tuesday), the restaurant has been ordered to temporarily close. 

Colin Cox, Cumbria County Council’s Director of Public Health, said:

"We need everyone to play their part in stopping the spread of coronavirus. We're all in this together, so if you have symptoms of coronavirus please self-isolate and get a test. If you have been contacted by contact tracers or have been asked to get a test, please follow the advice."

People across Cumbria with coronavirus symptoms, however mild, are also reminded that testing is available to anybody in the county at a range of locations. Details are available online at https://northcumbriaccg.nhs.uk/covidtesting, including dates of the Mobile Testing Units which continue to operate across Cumbria.
