MIDDLEBURG HEIGHTS, Ohio — An employee at Fat Head’s Brewery in Middleburg Heights tested positive for COVID-19 last week, which prompted a temporary store closure for deep-cleaning.

On June 25, the employee called in and said they didn’t feel well. The next day, the employee tested positive for coronavirus, according to the brewery. Management placed the employee and everyone the person had close contact with on a two-week paid quarantine.

Additionally, the brewery said that it sent customers home, contacted the local health department and closed early. The facility was then deep-cleaned and contact tracing was conducted.

Fat Head’s said that all of its employees have been trained regarding COVID-19 protocols and each person does a self-assessment on their health before reporting for work.

“We are all working through new dynamics. We appreciate your understanding as we navigate during this unique time. The safety of our staff and you, the consumer, is of most importance,” Fat Head’s stated on Facebook.
