SAN ANTONIO – A Filipino restaurant on the Northwest Side has temporarily closed its doors after one of its managers tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this week.
The Sari-Sari Filipino Restaurant, Market and Bakery, located at 5700 Wurzbach Road, announced the closure Thursday on social media, saying both the restaurant and market will be closed for two weeks for employee and customer safety.
“We know this will have a negative impact on our business and our employee’s lives, but safety is and will always be our number 1 priority,” the restaurant said in a statement.
The restaurant said it believes the employee that tested positive contracted it outside of the restaurant.
However, out of an abundance of caution, Sari-Sari said it will sanitize and disinfect the restaurant. Staff members will also be given ample time to get tested for COVID-19 and quarantine, the restaurant said.
Employees routinely receive temperature checks at the beginning and end of their shifts, and the restaurant said it believes the exposure is “low risk.”
