(NBC) - A COVID-19 outbreak has been confirmed at a strip club in Wisconsin Dells, according to the Juneau County Health Department.
The health department reports two or more COVID-19 cases have been confirmed at Cruisin’ Chubbys Gentlemen's Club at US Highway 12 and 16 in the Dells.
Juneau County Health Department advises that if you visited Chubbys between June 10 and 14, you may have been exposed to COVID-19. If you are experiencing symptoms, the department asks you contact your health provider.
The department did not release details on how the virus might have spread in the club.
There's a few reasons why we cannot allow local news outlets to die. One of those very reasons is that last sentence. "The department did not release details on how the virus might have spread in the club." That's funnier than the name Cruisin' Chubbys, which is an A++ Gentlemen's Club name. Absolutely no clue how a virus that spreads from close contact person to person could possibly spread in a strip club. To me, this is unfathomable. Perhaps the biggest curveball The Rona has thrown our way thus far. If anything a story like this makes me think we know less about the virus than we did before, which was already little to nothing. If I recall the protocol was: 1. put on a mask, 2. then enter some of the least hygienic conditions the Wisconsin Dells have to offer, 3. ????, 4. be immune to any and all disease ever again for the rest of time. That's what I remember Fauci saying in March or April. So to see this kind of set back just when we thought we had this thing figured out and on the ropes is quite the momentum shift in the wrong direction. Hopefully this was an isolated incident, a glitch in the Matrix more or less, and other gentlemen's clubs nationwide didn't suffer such unfortunate twists such as coronavirus outbreaks due to extreme personal contact.
