Johnny’s Pour House temporarily closes after positive COVID-19 test

FLUSHING — Johnny’s Pour House, located on 240 W. Main Street in Flushing, temporarily closed its doors last week after one of its dishwashers tested positive for COVID-19.

According to a post on the bar and grill’s Facebook page, the employee last worked on July 18 and had gone into quarantine. The owners of Johnny’s Pour House then notified the Genesee County Health Department of their decision to take precautions and close.

“We have taken pride in implementing all health orders from state and local authorities these last four months, but sometimes things happen that are beyond our control,” the owners said in a statement. “We will be further cleaning and sanitizing during this down time for everyone’s continued safety. In temporarily closing, we are putting our employees and the community’s health above all else. We are so grateful to be able to serve the awesome community of Flushing and have the best staff any business could ever ask for supporting us every day.”

As of press time, Johnny’s Pour House was tentatively scheduled to reopen today. — B.G.
