Noodz closes temporarily

Another city restaurant has also announced it is temporarily closing to have staff tested after two employees felt ill, according to a post on the restaurant’s Facebook page.
Noodz, which finally reopened about two weeks ago after closing in March at the beginning of the statewide shutdown, made the announcement Thursday afternoon via Facebook.
“This morning we heard disconcerting news that two of or employees were ill. In keeping with the recommendations of the health department, we are closed until we receive COVID-19 tests back from the staff. It is not ideal and we hope to reopen within the next few days. Stay tuned to our social media and website for updates.”
The message included a thank-you to customers for their support, which they said is vital for the city’s small businesses to survive in the long run.
Earlier this week the Puritan Backroom announced it was closing for two days after a bartender tested positive for COVID-19. BlueAqua on Elm Street also announced a temporary closure as a precaution, as well as Cafe la Reine.

Clarification: The story has been corrected to reflect that two Noodz employees felt ill and staff is being tested. No staff members have tested positive according to John Patti.
