Driftwood-based Vista Brewing announced online June 18 that one of its staff members has tested positive for COVID-19, and the location will close its beer garden temporarily out of caution. According to the announcement, the staff member did not work in the beer garden or tasting room and has not been on-site since June 13.
We learned late last night that one of our team members has tested positive for COVID-19. They are not in a guest-facing role (i.e. do not work in our Tasting Room & Beer Garden) and were last on property last Saturday. To help preserve the health and safety of our work family and our community, and out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to temporarily close our Beer Garden starting today, Thursdy 6/18. As of today, no other team members have shown symptoms, and we are asking all team members to be tested for COVID-19. Vista will remain closed until our team members confirm negative test results and we deep clean our facilities. We remain committed to providing a positive place where our community can relax outdoors and enjoy the beautiful Texas Hill Country. We appreciate your ongoing support as we all continue to watch how this virus evolves and touches our lives. Please keep an eye on our website and social media for updates. We look forward to serving you again very soon.
Salt Lick BBQ, another Driftwood business, temporarily closed for five days due to a confirmed COVID-19 case earlier this month, but it reopened June 12 and is currently open. Its food truck in Dripping Springs is also open for business.
