Chick-fil-A in Dalton Mall closes after employees test positive for COVID-19

A Chick-fil-A in Dalton Mall has closed after some of its employees tested positive for COVID-19.

The Daily Citizen-News reported the closing. It was not reported how many employees tested positive for the illness.

“Our highest priority is the health and well-being of our team members and guests,” Chick-fil-A said in a statement. “After learning that team members at Chick-fil-A Dalton Mall were diagnosed with COVID-19, the restaurant proactively closed and took precautionary measures, including disinfecting and deep cleaning the restaurant. Safe service is our top priority and our restaurants continue to follow CDC (U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and local health department guidelines.”

Jennifer King, North Georgia Health District spokesperson, told the publication officials did not close the restaurant. It closed on its own.

This is the latest Georgia Chick-fil-A to be impacted by the coronavirus. Last month, a Loganville Chick-fil-A underwent a thorough cleaning after one employee tested positive for COVID-19.
