The Vanderburgh County Health Department says two individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 were present at Chasers Bar & Grill in Evansville, Indiana, on Friday, Sept. 11.
The health department says that on Sept. 12, the individuals were confirmed to have COVID-19 through local testing. Through contact tracing, it was identified that the infectious individuals were at the bar from 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 11.
VCHD says while at Chasers Bar & Grill on Saturday, the individuals who tested positive for the virus weren't wearing face coverings or social distancing, resulting in exposure to staff and other patrons.
"All staff and patrons of Chasers Bar and Grill that were present on the evening of 09/11/2020 from 10 p.m. until 2 a.m. should monitor themselves for symptoms of COVID-19," VCHD said in a press release on Tuesday.
VCHD says they'll be contacting the management of Chasers Bar & Grill "with the concerns of exposure and that was not in compliance with Governor Holcomb’s Executive Order 20-37 requiring every individual with the State of Indiana to wear a face-covering over their nose and mouth when inside a business, public building, or other indoor place open to the public."
Free COVID-19 testing is available in downtown Evansville at the CK Newsome Center, where operations were recently extended through the month of October.
Chasers Bar & Grill is located at 2131 W Franklin St in Evansville, Indiana.
