UPDATE: After testing and cleaning, Main Street Farmer and BK Taphaus successfully re-opened Friday, July 10 to the public. The businesses released the following statements to their fans on Facebook:
St. Michael’s most popular venue – Main Street Farmer Eatery and BK Taphaus – will be temporarily closed after an employee tested positive for COVID-19, the illness caused by the novel coronavirus.
The restaurant and tap house’s management announced the closure early Thursday, July 2.
Main Street Farmer already suffered through a nearly three-month period where diners were limited to a take-out menu. The tap house and restaurant each opened to patio service in early June, and the state paved the way for 50 percent capacity indoor dining in mid-June.
