Stone Local Outbreak Control
Latest situation in Stone
The Covid-19 incident linked to the Crown and Anchor pub in Stone has been stepped down on Friday 7 August.
- There remain 22 confirmed cases.
- Fifteen of these are Staffordshire residents and seven are from Stoke-on-Trent.
- Their 60 plus contacts have been identified and all are self-isolating for 14 days.
Around 1,000 people have been tested in connection with the outbreak and authorities are confident that it is unlikely there will be further confirmed cases who were infected at the Crown and Anchor or by others who were there.
The guidance on going out remains:
- Social distancing – 2 metres ideally
- Limit the number of people you are meeting up with
- Avoid contact with people not in your immediate group
- Don’t attend large social get-togethers
- Make sure any pub or restaurant is collecting your contact details
- Don’t go out if you have any symptoms. You must stay home for 10 days and book a test at www.nhs.uk/coronavirus or by phoning 119
- If you are contacted by NHS Test and Trace after a visit to say you have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive – you must stay home for 14 days, even if you feel well
The county council has been working closely with Stafford Borough Council, Stoke-on-Trent City Council, Public Health England, Staffordshire Police and the NHS to manage the outbreak.
Licensed premises not just in Stone, but across Staffordshire, are being reminded of their obligations to have measures in place to protect both customers and staff.
