Truett’s is temporarily closed after an employee tested positive for COVID-19.

[Editor's note: Truett's was reopened for business on Thursday. Below is the original story.]

Truett’s Chick-fil-A was temporarily closed after an employee tested positive for COVID-19.

“After learning that a Team Member at Truett’s Chick-fil-A – Newnan was diagnosed with COVID-19, the restaurant temporarily closed and took precautionary measures, including disinfecting and deep cleaning the restaurant,” company officials said in a statement emailed to the Times-Herald Wednesday. “Safe service is our top priority and our restaurants continue to follow CDC and local health department guidelines.”

The company didn’t disclose how long Truett’s will remain closed.

The dining room at Truett’s has been closed since March, and the location had been offering drive-thru and delivery services. Employees wear masks and gloves, take a temperature check and health assessment before the workday, and are required to wash their hands at least every 30 minutes and after touching currency, according to www.chick-fil-a.com .

The company said it is monitoring guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, U.S. Food and Drug Administration and local governments and updating its operations accordingly.

“Our highest priority is the health and well-being of our team members and guests,” the statement said.
