Smith says the individual had no indication of symptoms while at work.

“In order to protect the rest of the staff and our community, we will be closing for at least a week in order to allow for company wide testing as well as completely disinfecting and sanitizing the entire restaurant,” Smith said.

The state health department and the restaurant will work closely during this time to ensure the facility is safe for the public upon reopening.

“We will take every precaution necessary and provide updates throughout this process. As always, we appreciate the love and support of our community,” Smith said.
