Another Tartu nightclub has reported a coronvirus case, this time among a staff member.

Shooters nightclub in Estonia's second city announced on its social media page that a security guard at the club had tested positive, daily Postimees reports; the guard had been working the door at Shooters last Saturday night.

The case is the fourth involving night spots in Tartu.

A recent outbreak has been traced to a July 18 visit by a coronavirus carrier to the Vabank nightclub in the city, with positive tests since appearing among individuals who had been to the Naiiv and Möku bars.

Postimees reports (link in Estonian) that Shooters says the individual had been wearing a facemask, and it is not known either where he contracted COVID-19 or how many other people may have been exposed to the virus as a result.

The club added that it will remain closed until the circumstances of the infection were clearer.

Naiiv says while no positive cases have been detected among its staff, it will remain closed at least to the end of this week.

Shooters and Vabank are within about 100 meters of each other, on or near Vallikraavi. Möku is 600 meters away, on Magasini and Naiiv is at a new location by the Emajõgi River.
