OHSWEKEN — One of the most popular local restaurants is reopening and implementing additional safety measures after closing its doors over the weekend due to two staff members testing positive for COVID-19.
Management for Maracle Man’s Delivery and Take-Out announced the closure on the restaurant’s Facebook page on February 25, saying two staff members who worked at the location a week prior, on February 20, tested positive for COVID-19.
The restaurant re-opened on March 1 after all staff were able to produce negative COVID tests. As a precaution, all staff who worked directly with the members who tested positive were required to do a full 14 day quarantine before returning to work.
“The employees who were not in direct contact with the positive cases weren’t required to get tested or to quarantine but our management asked them to get tested to be sure no one else had covid 19. Thankfully all of their tests came back negative and they are cleared to come back to work if they wish to do so,” said the restaurants management in a post to social media.
Maracle Man’s says they have health and safety protocols in place including staff following physical distancing protocols, masks and gloves are worn at all times and are only offering curb side pick-up for orders. Staff members are also undergoing temperature checks before shifts and payments are being accepted as exact cash, or debit payment by tap or e-transfer.
The statement goes on to say, “We are confident that we can safely provide our service to the community. We are putting every safety measure possible in place so customers and employees feel confident and safe with our service . We would like to thank everyone for your patients and understanding. Please stay safe.”
