COLUMBUS, Ohio — Three Columbus bars and restaurants are closed after an employee at one of them tested positive for COVID-19.

A post on social media pages for Standard Hall, Short North Pint House and Short North Goody Boy said a Standard Hall employee tested positive and had contact with employees at the other locations.

All three locations are closed and will be thoroughly cleaned, the post said.

All employees will be tested and if the result comes back positive, the employee will go into quarantine.

The restaurants said the locations will be sanitized with Bioeque, which does not have harmful chemicals and is used in hospitals.

"We want our community to know that your's and our staff's safety is our number one priority. We will take this time to make sure our venues are properly sanitized and our employees are healthy before we return," Standard Hall wrote in the post.

The posts have since been removed and 10TV has reached out to Corso Ventures, the locations' parent company, asking why the posts have been removed.

On Sunday, the following was posted to the Standard Hall Instagram story.
