Health officials are concerned about people who visited an Evansville bar last weekend. 

The Vanderburgh County Health Department says an individual with COVID-19 was at KC’s Marina Pointe, off Waterworks Road, for an extended period of time last Saturday evening.

In a release, the health department said the person tested positive for the corona virus a few days later.

The department says the person was not wearing a face covering or social distancing while at the establishment, exposing staff and patrons.

Anyone who attended KC’s Marina Pointe last Saturday should monitor themselves for symptoms of COVID-19 -- including fever, cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste and smell, sore throat, runny or congested nose, fatigue, muscle and body aches, headache, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Persons with COVID-19 symptoms should call ahead before visiting a health care provider or emergency room. Testing is available at both Deaconess and St. Vincent hospitals.  

The Health Department says the owner of both KC’s Marina Pointe and KC’s Time Out Lounge closed the establishments on Thursday for deep cleaning.

The department said it was concerned the bars had not been following state guidelines.
