Two local restaurants have temporarily shut down after employees tested positive for COVID-19.
True North Coffee announced on Sunday that they will close Monday through Wednesday this week after a staff member tested positive.
“We are following state guidelines and will open back up as soon as we can,” they posted on Facebook. “Thank you for your continued support.”
Also on Sunday, Flatbread Company Bedford posted they also had a team member test positive and they are closing the restaurant, though they did not name a date for reopening.
“With the well-being of team members, guests, as well as the community in mind, out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to temporarily close with the hopes of reopening ASAP,” they posted on Facebook. “One of our team members just tested positive after coming into contact with a positive COVID-19 individual outside of our work environment. Our team members who were in close contact are following CDC and state guidelines by getting tested and immediately self-quarantining.”
Flatbread said they are taking the necessary precautions to welcome guests back into the restaurant.
“We will be disinfecting the building,” they said. “Additionally, we are working with our local DHHS authorities to provide them with all the information they need to perform tracking and tracing if they deem necessary. We look forward to seeing you as soon as we can.”
