WESTFIELD – Tin Bridge Brewing closed its doors April 6 after one of its employees tested positive for COVID-19.

Owners Joe and Nick Cocchi posted the news Monday afternoon on the Tin Bridge Facebook page and reassured patrons the employee did not have direct contact with customers.

“As a result, we will be closing our facility until further notice and following all necessary protocols for cleaning and sanitization,” the post stated.

The Cocchis noted they have practiced health and safety guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control since the coronavirus outbreak began here several weeks ago and they will continue to do so as they disinfect.

“Our staff has been notified and will be following the recommended quarantine protocol,” stated the Facebook post. “Please be assured, we have been practicing all CDC guidelines for safety and sanitization over the last several weeks, and we thank you all for doing the same when here.”

The Cocchis plan to reopen for carry out sales as soon as it is safe.

“As always, we appreciate everyone’s support during these times and assure you all we will be back in business as soon as time allows,” they stated via Facebook.

Tin Bridge Brewing, 487 East Main St., has been operating for can sales only since Gov. Charlie Baker ordered bars and restaurants closed for on-premises consumption.
