The owners of the Peephole Bar & Grill in downtown Evansville have announced they will temporarily close after a customer who tested positive for COVID-19 was inside the establishment Tuesday evening.

In a statement posted on Facebook Sunday afternoon, the owners said the customer tested positive for the virus after visiting the bar earlier in the week.
