CALGARY (660 NEWS) — The Garage Sports Bar in Eau Claire Market has closed down until further notice after an employee tested positive for COVID-19.

The employee arrived in Calgary from Frankfurt on March 1, and worked at the restaurant from March 3 through 7.

Even though they were not ordered to close, the owners made the decision to shut down while they disinfect and clean the premises.

Other staff members who worked alongside the affected employee are also in self-isolation for 14 days.

It is added that any staff missing work will be fully reimbursed for lost shifts.

They are working closely with Alberta Health Services to determine any next steps.
