EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT)- The Vanderburgh County Health Department confirmed an employee at Xcess Night Club in Evansville tested positive for COVID-19.

Health officials say the employee worked Saturday and Monday evening without a mask, potentially leading to exposure for any staff members or customers present. Anyone at the night club Saturday or Monday night is asked to monitor for symptoms. Anyone displaying symptoms should call their health care provider or hospital to warn them of potential COVID-19 exposure.

The news comes just after a customer at KC’s Marina Pointe Saturday tested positive for the virus, leading to a temporarily closure of that establishment and KC’s Time Out Bar and Grill Thursday.

“These have been the first two positive individuals in which we’ve seen a mass exposure where we could not reach those individuals because the positive clients did not know the names of the people they came into contact with,” Lynn Herr with the Vanderburgh County Health Department said.
