Doors to a Littleport pub remained shut on Sunday for the Euro 20202 final after isolated cases of Covid-19 among customers.
The Crown Inn posted a message to Facebook on Saturday saying the pub will stay shut until July 16.
"We have done everything in our power to protect our customers from this virus since reopening,” says a message on the pub’s Facebook page.
“Unfortunately, it appears that someone came into the pub on Saturday July 3, unaware that they had Covid.
“This has now spread and we have received news of two positive PCR positive cases.”
The pubs says it made the decision to close following support and help from the environmental health officer at East Cambs Council.
"We have now had the pub deep cleaned and we have spoken again to the environmental health about more positive cases.”
