PALM SPRINGS — Hunters Palm Springs is closed effective immediately due to employee quarantined related to coronavirus according to a post on the company’s Facebook page.

“An employee at our location has tested positive for COVID-19, according to the notice. All employees who have been in contact will be tested and quarantined for 14 days.

Hunters’ owners, management and staff are dedicated to ensuring the safety of our employees and  guests by taking the necessary precautionary measures.

“Thank you for understanding and we look forward to serving you  again very soon,”  the post reads. It was signed by management.

No one at the business answered the phone Saturday afternoon.

“I fully support their decision and it demonstrates they are taking action to protect their employees and customers<” Mayor Geoff Kors told Uken Report. “It is important for everyone to take precautions as we are seeing a significant increase in positive test results and hospitalizations in the Coachella Valley.”

Hunters Nightclubs® Palm Springs, Palm Springs’ go-to gay bar and dance club, has been leading the way in full-out fun for 20 years now, according to its website.

“And we keep it pumping, making it better for you all the time with our unparalleled event line-up. We enjoy having the desert’s most sought-after and friendly DJs, full-on themed events, and a staff that has it all without the attitude,” according to the website. And of course, we are proud to still hold the longest happy hour in all the Valley. Remember: Size Matters.”

Roly China Fusion has also closed saying, We have been informed by a guest that dined with us last week on Friday and Sunday, June 19 and 21, that they have tested positive to Covid-19.

“Out of an abundance of caution, Roly China Fusion will be closed until further notice,” Chad Gardner & Roly Carvajal Paz wrote in their notice.

“We are closing so we can send our staff to be retested for Covid-19, to be quarantined and for deep cleaning. We will keep you informed when we plan our reopening. Thank you for understanding during this difficult time,” they said.

Street Bar, a gay bar at 224 E Arenas Road, has also temporarily closed for similar reasons.
