  • MT archives
The owners of PJ's Lager House have temporarily closed their business and are recommending any guests who visited between Friday, Oct. 9 and Monday, Oct. 12 get a COVID-19 after one of their own employees tested positive.

The Corktown bar made the announcement on Sunday on Facebook.

"We have had an employee test positive for COVID-19," the post reads. "If you have been in the bar any time between 10/9-10/12, you might want to get tested. The employee is under quarantine now, and we will be closed until all of our staff has two negative tests in a row."

They added, "Thanks for your understanding and we hope to reopen safely in the future."

The business has been closed since Tuesday.

Michigan has been seeing a surge in COVID-19 cases in recent weeks. The Michigan Supreme Court struck down Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's emergency powers earlier this month.
