Here is a statement from The Schooner Restaurant & Lounge posted to today September 4th on Facebook:
We have closed down operations today, Friday, September 4th, to sanitize and deep clean due to an employee testing positive for COVID-19.
After learning of the positive result, we have taken all action required by the CDC, as well as the Tillamook County Health Department. The employee and those they were in direct contact with are under quarantine for 14 days, and all areas of the restaurant are currently being sanitized. We have no reason to suspect the employee had come into contact with any restaurant customers, but we encourage you to contact the County Health Department or your primary care physician with any health concerns you may have.
We are saddened to be missing you today, however taking these measures is what will allow us to keep our employees and customers safe. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you on this holiday weekend and look forward to re-opening Saturday September 5th at our regular hours of operation.
Sincerely, Lexie Fields, General Manager

**Oregon Health Authority Definitions: **
A presumptive case is a close contact to a known case – on our list of persons we are monitoring – who develops symptoms but do not get tested. We presume they are positive and follow them as we would a positive case.
Documented recoveries- person is considered recovered after 90 days and Oregon Health Authority makes that determination.
