INVERNESS, NS – Route 19 Brewing has announced the closure of its taproom and restaurant until further notice due to a customer from out of province who visited last weekend without self-isolating.
The brewery announced via social media on Monday that it would be closed for cleaning, and followed up on Tuesday with a statement indicating that “an individual, who did not adhere to the self-isolation procedures when traveling from outside the Atlantic Bubble was in our taproom on Sunday” around 12:00 noon, and that they are “working with public health authorities to determine when it will be appropriate to reopen our taproom.”
Global News reports that the RCMP investigated the incident, and have charged a 38-year-old woman from British Columbia with a $1000 fine under Nova Scotia’s Health Protection Act.
Customers who were in the Route 19 taproom at the time of the individual’s visit are advised that they are “not required to self-isolate, [but] should continue to monitor themselves for any symptoms and call 811 if any of the symptoms develop.”
