Ocean County popular restaurant closes following multiple positive COVID-19 tests
Charlies of Bay Head, a popular restaurant in Ocean County, has closed after multiple positive COVID-19 tests.
The restaurant went public on its social media pages about why the spot had to temporarily close, following the lead of several restaurants last week in Asbury Park.
The news comes as another example of a restaurant trying to be upfront and honest with its guests.
According to the social media post, the restaurant already had strict COVID-19 precautions in place, including daily temperature checks, enhanced HVAC features, and daily sanitization. Despite the efforts, the restaurant reports a few positive cases and has since shut for a period of time to let further cleaning crews go over the facility.
In the post, management writes, "We remain diligent and committed in our efforts in offering a welcoming, safe, and secure environment. We will keep the public updated as to when we will be reopening our doors."
The post did not specify if the cases were from employees or guests, or an exact date when they would reopen.
