St Ives hotel in G7 closed by Covid

An upmarket hotel inside the G7 restricted zone,  and apparently being used by members of a delegation to the G7 summit in Cornwall, has closed because 13 members of staff tested positive for COVID-19.

The Pedn Olva hotel in St Ives, has shut temporarily on advice from health officials and the local authority.

Among the guests were security staff for the German delegation and a media team working for a U.S. broadcaster, Sky News reported.

“Following extensive discussions over the last few days with PHE (Public Health England) and Cornwall Council, we have taken the decision to fully close the hotel,” said a spokesperson for the owners, St Austell Brewery.

Can’t help thinking they should have done this event by Zoom.
