Cabarrus Health Alliance Investigates COVID Cases At Old Armor Beer Company

KANNAPOLIS, N.C. — Cabarrus Health Alliance (CHA), with the County’s public health authorities, investigates 8 COVID-19 cases linked to Old Amor Beer Company in downtown Kannapolis.

Heath officials say anyone who has visited the Old Armor Beer Company in the last two weeks should monitor for coronavirus symptoms and consider getting tested.

“The complicated thing about COVID-19 is that people may have no idea they are positive for days before any symptoms appear. With eight confirmed cases within a 14-day window that all identified attending the brewery, public health officials have the responsibility to make the community aware,” shared Dr. Bonnie Coyle, Cabarrus County Public Health Director.

The Beer Company says they are following the appropriate safety measures to minimize the risks of contracting the virus including deep cleaning, disinfecting, requiring masks, table spacing to ensure social distancing, and encouraging staff members to get tested.
