Wisbech car firm set to temporarily close over Covid-19 after 'business associate' and former Wisbech man contracts virus
A Wisbech car company has announced it will temporarily be closing from tea-time on Wednesday in a bid to keep staff and customers safe during the current coronavirus outbreak.
Managing director Gary Robinson said the decision was partly prompted by news that a business associate and friend, Ryan Van Waterschoot, had contracted Covid-19 and was hospitalised last week as a result.
Ryan, a former Wisbech cricketer who now lives in Peterborough, posted news of his infection via Facebook and warned people of the dangers of failing to abide by the social distancing rule.
