KANSAS CITY ONE STEP CLOSER TO BAR SHUT DOWN REDUX AMID WESTPORT ALE HOUSE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK!!!
Another Kansas City bar shut down is on the way.
More to the point . . .
THE COVID-19 WESTPORT OUTBREAK HAS DOOMED KANSAS CITY BAR BIZ!!!
There are lot of local places that won't make it to the next reopen and we expect a great deal of outcry from the cowtown boozy crowd . . . Still, drunks arguing for freedom amid the worsening pandemic are unlikely to move the dial on public health.
Remember . . .
The White House coronavirus task force recommended that all Missouri bars shut down last week.
Also, Midsummer Mayor Q warned that another Westport shut down was an increasingly likely possibility.
Accordingly, here are the essential deets on this local smackdown in the making . . .
"According to the health department, some of the employees have not been cooperative with contact tracers and it’s unclear if they continued to work while they waited for their test results."
"The health department also says that during separate investigations, they were able to determine that two Kansas City residents who tested positive for the virus visited the bar on Aug. 29. Those two people were with seven co-workers who came to Kansas City for a business trip and told contact tracers that the seven co-workers flew back to their home states on Aug. 30 or Aug. 31."
"Because of this, health officials are asking anyone who visited Westport Ale House between Aug. 18 and Sept. 11 to quarantine for 14 days and call the health department if you experience symptoms or have tested positive for COVID-19."
