UPDATE: Tavern 105 In Superior Open Again
UPDATE: Tavern 105 is open again as of Monday (September 28th) morning, after closing over the weekend as a precaution, stating that they "received back the COVID test results with a negative result."
A popular restaurant in Superior has shut their doors temporarily as a precaution relating to COVID-19.
Tavern 105 announced the news on their Facebook page Friday (September 25th). According to their post, they were contacted earlier in the day and told that about a customer who had been in that week had tested positive for COVID-19.
As a precaution, owners decided to close temporarily until the entire staff can be tested. They elaborated on this decision, writing:
We are being proactive and communicating openly on why we are temporarily closing to prevent rumors from circulating. The closure is NOT saying any of our employees have COVID-19, instead that they may have been exposed to it by a customer earlier this week.As always, our number one priority has and continues to be that both our employees and customers are healthy and safe. The health and safety of our staff and customers is always our first priority.
Sadly, Tavern 165 is just one of several restaurants in the Northland that have had to temporarily shut down because of an employee or customer testing positive for COVID-19. For example, both the Duluth Grill and Little Angie's were forced to close for a bit earlier this year.
