According to the newest outbreak data, there are three confirmed positive cases with 18 other probable cases.
The TopGolf location in Centennial has reported three positive COVID-19 cases since June 29 and 23 probable cases.
TopGolf issues the following statement via email Thursday evening:
“To be clear, there are no associates currently working in the venue with a confirmed case of COVID-19. There were three confirmed cases in early August, and these Associates were immediately required to self-isolate from the venue as part of our safety protocol. Additionally, it is part of our standard safety protocol to require associates to self-isolate should they present flu-like symptoms or come in close contact with someone who has a confirmed case of COVID-19. The report of 18 suspected cases was a result of our enforcement of this protocol, however these are not confirmed cases of COVID-19. Our safety measures, which have been designed to maintain the safety and trust of our Guests and Associates, also include custom-made dividers in between each bay, guidelines for social distancing and enhanced disinfecting measures throughout the venue and outdoor hitting bays.”
On the TopGolf website, it says:
“Even with our significant health and safety measures in place, an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists when visiting any public place. That is why we are also asking for your help so we can all play safely together. Please be sure to wear your face covering when entering the venue until you reach your outdoor hitting bay*, adhere to our social distancing guidelines and, most importantly, save your swing for another time if you have tested positive for COVID-19 or are otherwise feeling sick.”
TopGolf reopened on June 15.
