Another restaurant is temporarily shutting down operations due to an employee contracting COVID-19. Grandma's Saloon & Grill will be shutting down parts of the restaurant until further notice.

The popular eatery announced the news on their Facebook page Friday (July 24th) afternoon, announcing that an employee had tested positive for COVID-19 and in turn, they will be closing the restaurant and kitchens located on the downstairs level.

According to their post, the upstairs patio area will remain open, as they operate with a different kitchen and staff than the downstairs level. They state they will be continuing to deep clean on an "ongoing basis" as the downstairs level remains closed.

Grandma's Saloon & Grill also says they are allowing employees who have had contact with said employee time off to self-quarantine. In the meantime, they are also suspending take-out from this location.

There is no word on when they are going to reopen. You can read their statement in full below:

Other restaurants in the area have also had to shut down temporarily due to an employee contracting COVID-19. Earlier this month, Tavern On The Hill in Duluth announced they were temporarily shutting their doors after an employee contracted COVID-19. Duluth's Great Harvest Bread Co. also shut down operations for a short time for the same reason. Both have since reopened.

Grandma's Saloon & Grill is located in the Canal Park area of Duluth at 522 South Lake Avenue. We will continue to monitor the situation and update you accordingly when they reopen.
