FLORENCE, Ore. -- Four businesses in Florence closed this week over coronavirus concerns.

On Tuesday two Dutch Bros employees tested positive for COVID-19, forcing the stand on 20th Street to shut down.

The following day, three restaurants in and around the Old Town district closed their doors as well.

Hukilau shut its doors after an employee called out sick. The employee got a COVID-19 test out of precaution. The owner said that he shut his doors out of a precaution as well and the restaurant will be professionally cleaned twice before reopening next Wednesday for take-out only. No employee has tested positive at Hukilau.

Nosh in the heart of the Old Town district closed its doors after an employee came forward and said she was around someone who tested positive for the virus. On Thursday, owner Kady Sneddon learned all of her employees tested negative and will open up again on Friday. She said she and her employees are strictly following health guidelines so they can stay open.

“There’s only a handful of us -- it is a small kitchen. We do all wear masks very faithfully, some of us masks and shields,” Sneddon said.

KEZI did reach out to Lovejoys, the other business that shut its doors, but we could not get a hold of them for comment.
