BECKLEY, W.Va. — An employee of Tamarack has tested positive for Covid 19. The discovery has prompted the closure of the southern West Virginia attraction for at least a week.
“We made the decision for the safety of our customers and employees to close the facility,” said General Manager Tammy Coffman.
Those who worked closely with the infected employee are also being tested and are in self quarantine for the time being.
“This person had no direct customer contact, it’s just with their department,” Coffman added.
The facility was closed Sunday and will remain closed until at least September 22nd. During that time, the West Virginia National Guard is begin called in to deep clean the facility. Coffman said she has been instructed the process will take about one to two days to complete the process.
