SoMe Brewing Company said the individual had initially tested negative after quarantining in wake of a household member also testing positive, the post said. The brewery said it hopes to re-open the tasting room on Tuesday.

The post also said it was "out of an abundance of caution" that the decision to close was made, citing CDC guidelines suggesting the tasting room could have remained open. Instead, SoMe Brewing Company said it preferred to allow for a deep clean and staff testing before re-opening to the public, per the post.

Here is the full post from SoMe Brewing Company on Monday:

We have just learned that a member of our Production Team, who does not work in the Tasting Room or with customers, has tested positive for Covid. This Production Team Member initially tested negative, but has been quarantining despite that negative test, due to a positive household member. Despite CDC Guidelines indicating we can remain open, we have decided to close our Tasting Room today out of an abundance of caution, to allow for a deep clean and staff testing. We apologize for any inconvenience, if you were hoping to stop in today. We hope to re-open tomorrow, but please check back or call for our latest operating status. Thank you for being understanding and stay safe, friends!!
