TWO members of staff at a Halfords store in Chester have tested positive for coronavirus, the company has confirmed.

Both workers are now self-isolating along with a third colleague who is awaiting the results of a Covid-19 test.

Halfords said its Greyhound Retail Park branch was shut for 24 hours in order for a deep clean to take place.

In a statement, the company said: "We can confirm that three colleagues at our Greyhound Park branch in Chester are currently self-isolating, two of whom have tested positive for Covid-19 while the third is waiting for a test result.

"As per official guidelines our store has been shut for 24 hours while a deep clean took place, and those who have been in contact with these colleagues have also been sent home to self-isolate.

"If customers have any concerns and have visited the store affected recently then they should call NHS 111 or visit for the latest information."

Halfords stores are classed as essential by the Government so are open during the current national lockdown.
