AN OSWESTRY petrol station closed temporarily after a staff member tested positive for Covid-19.

The Spar Euro Garages petrol station, near Mile End Roundabout, was closed on Monday in response to the positive test.

In line with the company’s own health guidance, the store was closed to the public while it underwent a deep clean.

A spokesman for Euro Garages confirmed the closure.

They said: "We can confirm that our Oswestry store is temporarily closed following a team member receiving a positive Covid-19 test result.

“Closing the whole site for deep cleaning is line with our own Covid-19 health guidance and is a precautionary measure that goes beyond government advice.

“We want our staff, supply chain and customers to feel comfortable when accessing our site services.”

The petrol station has now reopened.
