The company released an “important information” update on its website yesterday.

It reads: “Today it was recommended to us by Public Health England that a person who attended an event at the Birchington Vale Clubhouse on the evening of Saturday 7 March tested positive for the COVID-19 coronavirus.

“We are therefore contacting anyone who may have been close to the person to advise them of the situation and provide advice as recommended by Public Health England.

“We have been assured by Public Health England that the individual has taken the necessary precautions and that the probability of someone else attending the conference on March 7 by contracting the virus is extremely low.

“They informed that prolonged contact in the immediate vicinity of at least 15 minutes would be needed before any serious risk of infection and preliminary tests show that the virus can only survive on the surface for 30 minutes.

“Public Health England has confirmed that it is satisfied that the normal hygiene measures we have taken after the event have been sufficient, however, we will carry out further deep cleaning of the structures tonight.

“We were not provided with the personal details of the person who tested positive and we will not be given such information by Public Health England.”

The total number of coronavirus confirmed cases in Kent is currently 11: there are 590 people carrying the infection in the United Kingdom, 491 of them in England and 60 in the southeastern region of the NHS.
