NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge will temporarily close starting Monday to re-sanitize the building. 

Tootsie’s media manager Jeff Eslick told News 2 this comes after isolated cases of COVID-19 in downtown Nashville. Although the lounge says it’s been sanitizing multiple times a day, they want to thoroughly re-sanitize to protect employees and customers. 

Eslick said Tootsie’s has followed CDC and Metro Health Department guidelines.  

The business has pledge to financially support any employee that contracts COIVD-19 during their recovery. 

Re-sanitizing is expected to take a few days.
