Covid tests on staff at Oban’s Gelato Burger restaurant and takeaway have all come back negative.
The business shut its doors voluntarily last Friday after one of its back-of-house workers tested positive for the virus.
NHS Highlands told the public at the time that the risk to customers was ‘very low’
The main transmission route of Covid is direct human to human contact. There is currently no evidence that food is a source of the virus and it is very unlikely that it can be transmitted through the consumption of food.
A statement from Gelato Burger said: ‘We are so happy to report that all the staff members who had been in close contact with our member of staff who tested positive for Covid-19 last week, have all been tested and the test results have come back as negative in all cases.
‘Absolutely delighted with the news and to hear that. Our employee who tested positive is recovering well at home.
‘We will update our social media and website when we will be in a position to reopen.’
