Cactus Club, Cooperage and Landmark Lanes announce temporary closures due to Covid-19
Several Milwaukee bars and music venues have announced temporary closures as the city endures another rapid surge in Covid-19 cases.
The Cactus Club announced that it will close Dec. 24-31 "as we assess artist, community and staff needs in the face of the abrupt and pervasive spread of Covid-19." On Instagram, the venue wrote, "It’s not an easy or desirable decision to make a second time. We will be back to serve, host and celebrate with you soon. We’ll continue to assess conditions and decide what feels best to our team." A hip-hop bill presented by Breaking and Entering tonight at the venue is still set to go on as scheduled.
Boone and Crockett and The Cooperage have also both announced closings starting tomorrow.
Meanwhile Landmark Lanes will remain closed after announcing it was temporarily closing its doors yesterday. "Some members of our team tested positive for Covid-19, and for the health and safety of our team and customers, will not return to work until they have tested negative," the business wrote on Facebook.
City health officials have stressed that Covid-19 vaccines and boosters offer the best protection against the virus. For more information on the vaccines, you can visit Radio Milwaukee’s vaccine resource guide.
