Visitors to B&Q in Crawley were turned away today after a team member at the store received a positive test result to Covid-19.

B&Q confirmed that the staff member had not displayed any symptoms nor had they felt unwell.

The store confirmed they had closed so that a deep clean could take place as a precautionary measure which they said ‘goes beyond Government advice’.

A B&Q spokesperson said:

“We have strict social distancing measures in place in all our stores to help keep our colleagues and customers safe and have advised Crawley colleagues who may have worked in the vicinity of the team member about the availability of testing for themselves.”  

An update on the reopening of the store is expected soon.
