A coffee shop and ice cream parlour has closed to the public after a customer tested positive for coronavirus.
The Hayloft, on Sandy Lane in Widnes, posted on their Facebook page this morning saying they would be closing for a minimum of 48 hours, as a precaution.
They said the closure came after a customer, who visited the cafe for lunch on Thursday, September 3, informed them of their positive test result.
A statement uploaded to the venue's Facebook page said: "As a precaution we have made the decision to close The Hayloft today for a minimum of 48 hours after being informed by a customer that they have tested positive for coronavirus. The customer visited Thursday lunch time and anyone affected will be contacted by Track & Trace.
"None of the staff currently have any symptoms however we are asking those who may have been affected to get tested and follow guidance with regard to self isolating.
"We have extremely robust systems in place for Covid-19 and all table and chairs are thoroughly sanitised after each customer but we will be conducting a deep clean of the venue over the next 48 hours."

Yesterday, Liverpool city centre Italian restaurant Amalia also announced they would be taking action after a positive coronavirus test.
They confirmed staff were isolating and urged recent customers to seek advice and "stay safe".

Amalia, a multiple winner of the Best Pizza in England award at The Italian Awards, is closed until September 12.
The restaurant informed customers via email: "Amalia have taken the decision to close until September 12, 2020 after following NHS and Government guidelines.
"This is due to a positive Covid-19 test reported to the restaurant.
"Anyone who visited the restaurant from Sunday, August 30, 2020 should seek advice about getting tested."
Amalia provided details for NHS services customers could approach for advice if they had concerns.
The restaurant's statement added: "Despite the business following strict government guidelines to ensure customers and staff remained safe we feel this is the correct decision for our team and customers to 'stay safe'.
"The decision has been made for every team member to isolate and have been told to get tested.
"A deep clean and disinfection of the premises has and will continue to take place over the period of closure, and details will be passed on the NHS track and trace.
