“With the country’s President announcing a National State of Disaster due to the COVID-19 virus, we feel that you should know that the well-being of our guests and employees remain our top priority. A great percentage of our clientele are travellers from around the globe and as such, it is best that we temporarily close shop and do our part in stemming the current health crisis”, comments Luke Dale Roberts.

The Test Kitchen, The Pot Luck Club, The Shortmarket Club and Salsify at The Roundhouse are planned to re-open on Monday, 30th, however, a final decision on this will be made on Friday, 27th.

“While we haven’t had any members of staff travelling to and from affected areas and have naturally cancelled all travels to and from these areas, our team is advised to refrain from any travel at this time”, comments Luke further.

We have to remember that even though the number of COVID-19 cases are still relatively low in comparison to other infected countries the time to act is now. This is a global health emergency and we must protect ourselves and our community. Wash your hands regularly (wash for about twenty seconds), cover your mouth when coughing, cover your nose and mouth when sneezing, throw away your tissues after use, and make sure that you are thoroughly cooking your eggs and meat.

Avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as sneezing and/or coughing. Those who are most vulnerable are  the elderly, children and those who have diabetes and hyper tension, do the right thing and start social-distancing to protect your community.
