After several of its patrons tested positive for COVID-19, the management of the Pegasus nightclub on Main Street in San Antonio announced in a Facebook post on Monday that the club would close temporarily. No reopening date was given.
“It has come to our attention that several of our patrons have tested positive for Covid-19. Even though we have been having the Pegasus professionally sanitized by SAFE SANITIZE electrostatic disinfecting service, and taking all the proper precautions, the staff and management here at Pegasus feel that we need to take a couple of days to figure out how we can assure the safety of our patrons and staff. We are sorry for the inconvenience and we are aware that this not only affects us but has been affecting all the bars on the strip and in San Antonio. We promise we will be back soon and ready to continue to serve you safely. So stay tuned for a re-opening date.”
The Governor’s Strike Force to Open Texas has developed specific guidelines bars must follow to safely restart their businesses. These requirements include indoor customer capacity limits of 50% for bars with the requirement that patrons be seated at a table, along with social distancing of at least 6 feet between groups of customers.
