President Bar in Superior is temporarily closed after several people associated with the location tested positive for COVID-19, according to a news release from the Douglas County Department of Health and Human Services on Thursday.

Officials advise individuals who have spent time at the bar in the past two weeks to self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms. If symptoms develop, seek testing and self-quarantine until the results come back, the release said. Testing is available through Essentia Health, St. Luke’s and Lake Superior Community Health Center.

The county will continue to monitor and report businesses that are associated with two or more positive cases.
