WEST FARGO — The Wurst Bier Hall at 3179 Bluestem Drive in West Fargo has closed temporarily because an employee was recently in close contact with an individual who tested positive for COVID-19.

The announcement was made to the Wurst Bier Hall West Facebook page Friday, June 5.

The post said the bar and restaurant will be closed until the employee receives his or her COVID-19 results.

The West Fargo Wurst Bier Hall opened in October of 2018 in the former Loren Lee's location in a building also home to a Bottle Barn liquor store. The original Wurst Bier Hall opened in 2014 at 630 1st Ave N. in downtown Fargo.
