Two Anglesey pubs have been closed following an increase in coronavirus cases locally.

Anglesey Council has urged anyone who is showing symptoms of Covid-19 after coming into contact with customers from either the Bull Inn or Twrcyhelun Arms in Llanerchymedd recently to get tested as soon as possible.

The owners of the two pubs said they took the decision to close the establishments “in the interest of our staff, customers and the wider community”.

A testing centre has been opened in the car park of the council’s county offices today.

Posting on Facebook, the owners said: “Further to increases in Covid-19 cases locally, we have decided in the interest of our staff, customers and the wider community to close The Bull Inn and The Twrcyhelun Arms.

“We are working closely with Anglesey County Council’s Environmental Health Department regarding what the source of the local outbreak is.

“We are also looking closely as to what further measures we can put in place to help reduce the risk of the virus when we re-open.

“The Welsh Government are going to announce on Monday the 19th of October the possibility of further restrictions locally in Wales. Once aware of these we will plan accordingly.”

The council tweeted: “If you’re showing coronavirus symptoms after coming into contact with anyone who visited the Bull Inn or Twrcyhelun Arms recently please go for a test as soon as possible.

“A testing centre is at one of our County Offices car parks in Llangefni today.

“This can be accessed via the Llangefni Industrial Estate Road (opposite ATS Euromaster, LL77 7JA).

“Tests available until 4pm today; and Monday and Tuesday 10am-4pm.

“If you go for a test, everyone in your household must self-isolate until you get your result.”
