COVID-19 exposure closes restaurants

By Jensen, Randy on July 22, 2020.


Two Lethbridge restaurants have closed as a precaution due to exposure to COVID-19.

The Water Tower Grill & Bar noted on its Facebook page it will be closed until further notice after an employee came in contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case, with the exposure happening outside of work at a family barbecue.

The employee isn’t a confirmed COVID-19 case, however, to ensure the safety of employees and patrons, the restaurant will be closed to conduct a thorough cleaning while having all employees tested.

Meanwhile, the sister restaurant to the Water Tower, the Telegraph Taphouse, will also be closed to have all its employees tested and have the building thoroughly cleansed before reopening, the Facebook post said.

Please sign and share this link for a Petition to the Lethbridge City Council to impose temporary regulations requiring the wearing of masks or other face coverings within enclosed public spaces.


Did a baby boomer start the petition? The boomers are doing the most dying. The young don’t have to worry so much. Considering the boomers are responsible for the bleak future the young will have to endure it would seem like justice if the youngins decide to give the finger to wearing masks. If I was one of them, I would be forming crowds and partying. Since I’m not, sign me up.
