To our Tucson community

To our Tucson community,

The health and wellbeing of our customers and employees is always our top priority. That's why we feel it’s important to confirm two employees of our Dutch Bros Tucson location at 5690 W Cortaro Farms Rd. have tested positive for COVID-19.

Employee #1 took a COVID-19 test on 6/14 and received a positive COVID-19 result on 6/16. They have been advised to self-isolate for 14 days.

Prior to the positive test, the employee worked a morning shift on 6/9 and an evening shift on 6/10.

Employee #2 took a COVID-19 test on 6/15 and received a positive COVID-19 result on 6/18. They have not returned to the location since taking the test and have also been advised to self-isolate for 14 days.

Prior to their positive test, Employee #2 worked morning shifts on 6/11 and 6/12, as well as an afternoon shift on 6/15.

We learned of the first positive case on Tuesday, 6/16, and immediately began closing procedures. As an extra precaution, our Tucson shop will undergo a third-party deep clean before reopening. We are also coordinating with public health officials to confirm our protocols not only meet, but exceed, expectations. 

Because of our commitment to our communities, we have also taken the following steps over the last few weeks to prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • Enforced increased hand-washing and sanitizing

  • Temporarily suspended the use of personal mugs at our drive-thurs

  • Temporarily closed walk-ins and walk-ups to focus exclusively on serving through our drive-thru windows

  • Instituted a cashless payment system, eliminating unnecessary touch points between customers and broistas

  • Instituted mask policies to align with updated CDC recommendations

We want the community to know we’re following all recommended CDC guidelines and will continue to keep the community’s health at the forefront of all decisions we make.
