2 more metro restaurants closed after workers struck with COVID-19

This makes at least five coronavirus closures this week.

Two more Twin Cities restaurants have shut down as a result of positive COVID-19 test results among staff members.

On Friday, both Clays Galaxy Drive-In and Spring Street Tavern announced they'll be closed temporarily:

Meanwhile, the owner of Spring Street Tavern, located in northeast Minneapolis, posted the following on the restaurant's Facebook: 

One of our staff members may have been compromised with Covid-19. Out of an abundance of caution and in accordance with the MN Département of Health, Spring Street Tavern will be closed until further notice pending ample investigation.

The closure of Galaxy Drive-In, on 3712 Quebec Ave S in Minneapolis, comes less than a month after its long-awaited reopening. It had been shuttered since 2015.

They weren't the only metro-area restaurants to shut down as a result of sickened employees this week. In St. Paul, the Lexington announced it would be closed until July 8, following extensive cleaning and disinfecting. 

The same also happened to the Freehouse and Mac's Industrial Sports Bar, both in Minneapolis.
