ONE ASDA staff member told Eastbourne Chamber of Commerce: ‘The virus isn’t in Eastbourne.’

The Chamber has compiled a shocking survey of Eastbourne supermarkets.

The Chamber said: “Some staff had no idea of the cleaning protocols, including one person at ASDA who told us “the virus isn’t in Eastbourne”!

“When the report is completed we will share it with you in detail.

“If supermarkets are enabling the virus to spread, it is our members who are having to pay the cost by closing down.”
