Duluth Cider has closed its taproom and production facility "until further notice" after a staff member tested positive for COVID-19.

The hard cider maker said on Facebook Sunday it's doing this "out of an abundance of caution" while the staff is tested and the taproom is deep-cleaned and sanitized. 

Duluth Cider says "keep an eye open for our future reopening plan once we get the all-clear" and in the meantime, you can get cider at local liquor stores

"Thanks for your understanding, and we are excited to report back when we can safely open our doors and start slinging cider again," the post says. 

St. Louis County public health officials said last week the county is seeing significant transmission of the virus via community spread, so it is reminding people to socially distance, avoid gatherings, wear a mask and stay home if you're sick. 

Here's the Minnesota Department of Health's testing website, which has information on where and when to get tested.
