A popular restaurant on the beach at Larvotto has been obliged to close for four days because members of staff were found not to be wearing face masks while serving customers.

La Note Bleue issued a statement saying: “It is with great sadness that we have to tell our clients and friends that we have been issued with a closure notice because several of our staff were not wearing masks,”

The four-day extension ends on Friday, when the restaurant will be back in business.
