ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — Officials in Alexandria are warning patrons at one of the city's most popular bars about exposure to the coronavirus.

The Alexandria Health Department says a person who spent extensive time at Murphy's Grand Irish Pub has tested positive for coronavirus.

The city is asking people who were at the bar at the same time as the individual to self-quarantine and contact the city for further guidance.

The individual was at Murphy's on Tuesday, March 10 from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m., Saturday March 14 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday March 15 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The health department did not specify whether the individual was an employee or patron.

A call to the pub went unanswered Thursday morning.
