Earlier this morning, we learned that one of our staff members have tested positive for COVID-19. As many of you may know, we operate multiple locations in a common space. Although this staff member was not a part of our direct bar service team, out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to temporarily shut down for the next couple of days to sanitize and deep clean thoroughly. This closure will include The Landing, The Pelican Pub & Detroit Liquor. It is also at this time, in light of the most recent spike in the downtown area, that we have also decided to hold off on reopening the doors of Jannus Live and have postponed the upcoming Pirate Flag concert on June 19th. It saddens us greatly as we were so looking forward to bringing back live music, but we believe wholeheartedly this is the right thing for this time and in the best interest of the general public and our staff! Stay tuned for our next steps as we are trying to do what's best for our community each step of the way.
