*UPDATE: Summertown Studio has since stated on Facebook the case that visited has been confirmed as a false positive. All staff are isolating until test results are received and the venue will seek to reopen as soon as it is safe to do so.*
Summertown Studio is closing its doors temporarily after receiving news a fitness class attendee has tested positive for COVID-19.
The creative hub, located in Somerton Park, has stated all associated class members have been contacted and are getting tested.
Summertown Studio released the following on Facebook:
“Friends. We are absolutely devastated to report, that on Thursday night, an attendee of one of our loft FMT classes at 5:30pm, has been tested positive with Coronavirus. All associated class members have been individually contacted, are getting tested and are self isolating.
We cannot stress enough that this was outside of hours of operation, but even still, as a safety precaution, all in-house staff are getting tested and are self-isolating as well. As a result, we will be closing our beautiful home until further notice, after all test results have been received, and once the entire building has had the deepest of deep cleans.
It is with the heaviest of hearts that we have had to make this decision, but it is absolutely the safest and only thing to do right now. So good friends, be sure to grab your coffee from another small business this week, and we’ll be back with more information, as soon as we have it. Thank all of you great humans for your endless support. stay safe, stay well, stay wonderful.”
The news comes after SA Health reported two new COVID-19 cases earlier today, bringing the state’s active case count to ten.
Today’s cases include a female in her 20s, who has been identified as part of the current cluster.
The second case is also a female in her 20s, and her case is still under investigation.
