Yesterday afternoon an employee at our Florida Avenue location tested positive for COVID-19. The employee is asymptomatic and continues to feel well but is at home in quarantine. We were planning on closing the Florida location yesterday due to weather anyway, so we announced that closure while attending to the important task at hand.
All of our employees and owners that work out of the Florida Avenue location reported immediately to testing sites. They have all been tested and are now in quarantine while awaiting their results. We care greatly about their wellbeing and are in frequent communication with them about their needs. So far, no one is showing symptoms. Our employees will be paid to stay home for as long as is needed to ensure safety for all.
The employee that tested positive does not have any interaction with guests and we have no reason at this time to believe that any of our patrons would have been affected by this. We will reach out if new information contradicts that. We can also be reached at Info@ANXOdc.com if needed.
After 3pm today Florida Avenue will have been vacant for 24 hours and employees and owners that test negative will return for a deep-clean. We will reopen the Florida Avenue location in stages based on what we feel is safe with the team that we have available to us on any given day. Please check our social media as we will provide daily updates.
On May 15th ANXO split it’s staff into two pods. President Sam Fitz, Chef Alex Vallcorba, and the cidery production team have been based out of the Kennedy Street location ever since and have not had any contact with the Florida staff. Kennedy Street will continue to operate like normal and DC-wide deliveries will now come from that location. We are not able to offer all of the Provisions that we usually do, but we can still fill the majority of most orders.
Please consider supporting us by ordering ANXO Cider, beer, wine, or Lost Sock Coffee beans delivered to your door, or order some of Chef Alex’s amazing menu for pick-up or dine-in at 711 Kennedy St. If you’re out of town, ANXOcider.com ships to your door! We could use a little cheer from our friends and family!
Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to having our family back together!
