Peterborough City Council said that businesses and traders have been made aware of the required safety measures that need implementing as a result.
Talking about the situation, Liz Robin, Director of Public Health for Peterborough and Cambridgeshire said: “Following the information that there have been two positive COVID 19 cases connected to the Food Hall at Peterborough Market, it will be temporarily shut for a deep clean.
“We have informed and given advice to businesses, market traders and communities about the necessary steps that they need to take around social distancing and measures they can take to keep themselves and their friends and family safe.
“We have already increased proactive public health messaging in Peterborough and are using postcode level data to target our prevention and outbreak management efforts even further, through our community rapid response team, especially given the reduction of lockdown measures.
“Coronavirus is still a part of all our lives and we must all continue to social distance, wash our hands regularly and follow the other public health advice.”
The city market has been in the news recently following the demolition of its multi-storey car park.
Currently, proposals are being drawn by the Peterborough Civic Society which would like to see Westgate House, formerly the Beales department store, be turned into an indoor market hall.
