ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The Monroe County Department of Public Health (MCDPH) is asking anyone who visited Bathtub Billy’s last week to contact them because they may have been exposed to COVID-19.

The MCDPH says anyone who visited the bar and restaurant at 630 W. Ridge Rd. between Sunday, Oct. 25 and Sunday, Nov. 1 may have been in close contact with several employees who have tested positive for COVID-19.

The department says anyone who went to Bathtub Billy’s to dine-in, drink or pick up an order in that time period should immediately self-quarantine and get tested for COVID-19.

The popular spot is known for its many tv screens and for its wing night specials. The MCDPH said it's possible the bar and restaurant may not have followed all guidance to reduce the risk of spreading the virus to staff and patrons.

The MCDPH also wants anyone who went there during that time period to email them at COVID19@monroecounty.gov.

Earlier this week, Bathtub Billy's announced it was temporarily closing for deep cleaning after an employee tested positive for COVID-19.
