A New Lenox Café has shut down temporarily due to a positive COVID-19 among it’s employees.
Gina’s Teardrop Café, located at 826 W Laraway Road in New Lenox, made the announced on their Facebook Page late Sunday afternoon.
“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!”
The announcement came just two days after restaurants and bars across Illinois welcomed back inside service again with the welcoming of Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois plan. Friday afternoon, Gina’s posted excitement for the reopening, saying the Cafe would follow “all social distancing guidelines to keep you safe.”
No word was given when the Cafe might reopen.
