“We regret to inform you that one of our employees has tested positive for COVID-19,” Gina’s staff wrote. “While all sanitation protocols were followed, we feel we have no choice but to shut down temporarily out of abundance of caution and in an effort to keep our staff, customers and community protected. We will be conducting another thorough deep sanitizing of the entire restaurant before we reopen to the public. Thank you for your continued love and support during these difficult times, as it is truly appreciated!”
