Crawley Council confirms 16 cases of COVID-19 with a link to Southgate pub



Crawley Council has now confirmed that an outbreak of Covid-19 at The Downsman pub in Crawley earlier this week is now being handled by Public Health England who have been organising contact tracing of staff and customers.

They confirm there are now 16 confirmed cases of coronavirus with a link to the pub and say that while this is a relatively small number and may not be the definite source of infection for all these cases, they are asking people to take action to ensure the virus does not spread further.

But some confusion still remains over why a single day, where one person who visited the Downsman and who has subsequently contracted Coronavirus, is exempt from people having to self-isolate. Crawley Council said they were looking into more detail over why this advice had been given to them.

A spokesperson for Crawley Borough Council said:

“If you were in The Downsman pub between 9 and 18 July (excluding the 16July) please self-isolate for 14 days from the date of your last visit.

If you have symptoms of coronavirus, you must self-isolate and get tested. Symptoms include a high temperature, new continuous cough and a loss or change in your sense of taste and smell.

If you develop symptoms your household contacts will also be required to self-isolate. More information on self-isolation is available on the NHS website.

If you have been identified as a close contact of a confirmed case, you will need to complete your 14-day isolation period even if you test negative. There is detailed guidance on the NHS website.

In order to arrange a free test, please visit or call 119.

A testing site is based in Crawley until 28 July; there is also a testing centre at Gatwick Airport. For more information about testing then please visit the government website.

West Sussex County Council Public Health and Public Health England confirmed they are continuing to monitor the situation and will organise contact tracing for any further identified cases who may have visited the pub.
