Grand Traverse Pie Company has temporarily closed all of its Traverse City locations after an employee at its West Front Street store tested positive for COVID-19.
The company announced Tuesday it was closing its West Front, Park Street, and food truck locations in Traverse City. "While we are not required to close our shops, out of an abundance of caution and for the safety of our guests and team, we have decided to close all three Traverse City Grand Traverse Pie Company retail locations," the company posted on Facebook. Grand Traverse Pie Company said it would remain closed "until the quarantine period ends," with tentative plans to reopen around August 8. "During this time, we will thoroughly disinfect and sanitize our shops and review and re-emphasize our COVID 19 Preparedness and Response Plan," the company said.
The employee who tested positive last worked at the store July 22. According to Grand Traverse Pie Company, the Grand Traverse County Health Department determined any potential public exposure was a "low-to-no-risk situation." That was reiterated in the Health Department's daily report Tuesday, which did not list any new known public exposure locations in the community.Comment
