Granzin Bar-B-Q will wrap up a 10-day closure on May 30, which was self-imposed after the business learned that two back-of-house employees tested positive for the coronavirus.

Both employees were sent home from work on May 16 after reporting they felt unwell and returned to work since, according to a post on Granzin's Facebook page.


The social media post states that the employees worked closely together and had their temperature checked when they arrived for their shift, at which time they were asymptomatic.

"Out of an abundance of caution, and in an effort to ensure the safety of our employees and customers, Granzin's Bar-B-Q will be closed until May 30."

COVID-19 has not been shown to be a foodborne illness and the closure was not required by government regulations.
