The Jolly Coachman announced that it has been advised by Fraser Health and Worksafe BC to stay closed for two weeks. It will re-open on Oct. 30.
Contractors are installing protective barriers throughout the pub, and staff are awaiting further test results, says a social media notification from the pub management.
Management closed on Oct. 16 when it learned a staff member tested positive for the virus. It sanitized the pub and had staff tested, and had planned to reopen on Oct. 21.
