Beer District Brewing, the craft beer taproom in the Arts District that opened on February 29, reports that an employee tested positive for COVID-19. The employee last worked on July 12 and tested positive on July 16.

“We feel the chance of transmission is low but it is our duty to be upfront and transparent with any and all who may have come into contact with them,” the taproom posted on Facebook.

Employees were all tested for COVID-19, and the taproom temporarily closed until all employees test negative. “It pains us to close down our business, again, but the last thing we want to do is potentially expose our customers.”

Beer District Brewing joins a joins a growing list of restaurants and bars that closed after an employee tested positive for COVID-19. Cornish Pasty Co. in the Arts District briefly closed to clean and test employees after an employee tested positive. Chinatown’s The Golden Tiki closed after an employee tested positive for COVID-19 in late June. Several Dutch Bros. employees tested positive. The bar is just one of a handful of places in Las Vegas that closed after a staff member tested positive for COVID-19. Jing and Wolfgang Puck Players Locker at Downtown Summerlin, Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar at Harrah’s Las Vegas, The Mayfair Supper Club at the Bellagio, Northside Cafe at the Sahara Las Vegas, and Beauty & Essex at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas all had employees test positive for COVID-19.
