Town centre post office closed as staff self-isolate
A town centre post office has been forced to close for the second time in a week.
Great Yarmouth Post Office, inside the WH Smith store in King Street, is closed for Tuesday, January 19 "due to staffing issues caused by the coronavirus pandemic" a spokesman said.
The service plans to be in a position to re-open on Wednesday.
Previously the branch had temporarily closed on Friday due to staffing issues but had re-opened.
Alternative branches include Southtown Road and North Denes.
During the lockdown Great Yarmouth Post Office also has revised hours and it is not open on a Saturday afternoon or all-day Sunday.
The spokesman added: "It is not appropriate to discuss the heath of staff and whether they have tested positive.

"Suffice to say that staff are having to self-isolate."
