GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Popular downtown Grand Rapids venue The B.O.B. has closed after one of its workers tested positive for coronavirus.
Signs on the front door Sunday read, “The BOB is currently closed. We hope to see you very soon!”
The B.O.B. posted on Facebook Saturday evening that it was shutting down for cleaning. It’s not yet clear when it will reopen, though it said events scheduled for July weren’t being canceled.
The employee has mild symptoms, the venue says. That person may have gotten the virus as early as June 11 at Gilly’s Smokehouse or BOB’s Beer Garden, both of which are part of the venue at Monroe Avenue and Fulton Street.
All the workers who had contact with the infected person are getting tested.
Patrons worried about exposure should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In Kalamazoo, Shakespeare’s Pub on E. Kalamazoo Avenue near N. Pitcher Street decided to close until at least Tuesday after one of its workers came into contact with someone who tested positive for the virus. The bar said in a Saturday Facebook post that none of its workers had tested positive, but it was acting out of an abundance of caution and would be cleaning everything.
