King's Lynn Golf Club members test positive for coronavirus
Two members of a West Norfolk golf club have tested positive for coronavirus.
King's Lynn Golf Club confirmed today that they have temporarily shut its clubhouse doors for 72 hours following the positive test results.
Richard Jessop general manager at King’s Lynn Golf Club, said: "In view of two members testing positive and following government guidelines we have closed down the clubhouse and patio area for 72 hours."
A tip-off to the Lynn News alleged two members from the Castle Rising-based club had tested positive for coronavirus in the past two days while several others are awaiting test results.
The course itself remains open to members while the clubhouse and patio area is being deep cleaned.
The clubhouse is expected to reopen its doors early next week and it is believed Public Health England have been kept informed of the developments.
