BEAUMONT, Texas — A Beaumont restaurant announced Sunday one of its employees has tested positive for the coronavirus.
Katharine & Company issued a statement on Facebook, saying 'per CDC guidelines, Katharine & Co.'s original location at MLK & Calder will be closed until further notice for deep cleaning and strict sanitation.'
According to the post, the eatery won't reopen until its full staff tests negative.
On Monday, in another Facebook post, the company said both its K2 Cafe and Katharine & Co. locations will be closed until further notice.
"After several months of unprecedented obstacles for this local restauranteur, I need to stop, think, and regroup. I want to be 100% sure we are 100% COVID negative, which, simply put, cannot be done overnight," the post said. "Every measure will be taken to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of our staff, customers, and community before we will reopen."
