BROMYARD Post Office has reopened after a positive Covid test forced it to temporarily close its doors.


Last Friday (August 13) the post office on Church Street announced that it would be closed for 10 days after a staff member tested positive for coronavirus.


However, due to the another staff member testing negative, and changes to self-isolation rules in England, it has been able to reopen today (Monday).


Earlier this month, the branch warned of staff shortages as the new owners had to leave for India at short notice but remaining staff would "endeavour to keep the post office open”.


But two weeks later, last Friday, the post office said a staff member had tested positive and another had to self-isolate.


However, from today, fully-vaccinated people were no longer required to self-isolate after being in contact with someone with Covid-19.


That, along with another staff member's test coming back from the laboratory as negative, meant it could reopen.


A spokesperson for the Post Office "sincerely apologised for any inconvenience caused" and said services would be fully restored as soon as possible.
