Superior bars voluntarily closing amid COVID-19 concerns

Updated: June 30, 2020 10:42 PM

A number of bars in Superior are choosing to voluntarily close their establishments after having served guests potentially infected with COVID-19.

On Facebook, the Charlie Brown's Bar, Tipsy Beaver Bar, and Tavern 105 said they will all voluntarily close.

Some are awaiting the guidance of the Douglas County Public Health Officer to give them the go ahead to reopen. 

The Tipsy Beaver posted that they did have a guest in the last two weeks who tested positive for COVID-19. They don't have a date to reopen yet, but they are taking this time to clean and disinfect their business.

Tavern 105 posted that they have had no one infected with COVID-19 entered their bar. One customer came in close contact with a confirmed case, but the customer later tested negative. 

Charlie Brown's Bar and Tavern 105 plan on reopening on July 7th.

In May, the Wisconsin Supreme Court ended Governor Tony Ever's stay at home extension to keep certain businesses closed.
