Craving Session Taproom for dinner? You’re out of luck.
The downtown Campbell River restaurant has closed its doors for the day “out of an abundance of caution,” after one of its staff had a COVID exposure over the weekend and has since developed some symptoms.
“As a precaution, while we await test results, we have decided to close the taproom for today (Wednesday, April 7th) and perform a deep clean of our space,” it said in a statement.
According to Session, there has been no chance of exposure to its patrons. It hasn’t been instructed by the health authority to close, but it’s doing so anyway “out of an abundance of caution for our team members and community.”
“Despite our diligent cleaning protocols and enforced mask usage, we know that COVID numbers are on the rise and need to do everything possible to stop the chain of transmission no matter how devastating to our business that may be,” it added.
