The York Dungeon has undergone a deep clean after one member of staff showed coronavirus symptoms.

“The health and safety of our guests and our staff is always our top priority and we will take all necessary precautions to ensure their continued welfare,” a spokeswoman told YorkMix.

Their statement said:

  • At The York Dungeon, as at all Merlin resorts and attractions, we have implemented enhanced cleaning regimes, increased the availability of hand sanitisation products and will adopt recommended practices and government recommended guidelines as appropriate, to maintain a safe environment.

    Our teams are alert to signs of coronavirus symptoms and understand the importance of good hygiene.

    Like many businesses, we continue to monitor the situation closely and are in regular contact with local authorities so we may respond quickly to any developments.

    One member of staff who was experiencing cold symptoms, as a precaution, followed the NHS recommended guidelines to stay at home. That staff member has not been diagnosed with coronavirus.
