A DEEP clean is under way and another pub closed following a confirmed case of coronavirus.

Bosses at The Anvil Rockbar in Bournemouth plan to reopen tomorrow after a person with the virus came into contact with other customers in a smoking area.

In a post on Facebook, a spokesman for the Holdenhurst Road bar said: "The customer visited the bar on the evening of Thursday September 3 between 10pm and 1am, and has since tested positive for COVID-19.

"We have been working with Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council and Public Health England South West to identify close contacts of the case and advise them to self-isolate.

"However we have been informed that the customer used the smoking area at the front of the building several times between 10pm and 1am and came into contact with other customers during this time.

"As a result, Public Health England and the local public health team are asking anyone who visited the smoking area at the front of the building between 10pm and 1am, and was not following social distancing measures, to self-isolate.

"You must self-isolate at home until Friday September 18. You do not need to get tested unless you develop symptoms of coronavirus."

The spokesman said an anti-viral fog machine has been hired and all staff are being tested.

"We will continue to monitor the situation, and implement new measures to try and work on more distancing in front of the venue/smoking area, and continue with our current system inside that is in compliance to both the council and public health standards.

"Thanks for your patience on this, in these strange times."
