On Sunday, July 12th Fatty’s Pub & Grill staff was notified by phone from a few of their employees that they had been in contact with someone (not at the Fatty’s location) that had just tested positive for COVID-19.
Customers that arrived after 2:00 PM for pick-up or to experience the patio dining option were surprised the restaurant was closed.
The employees that were exposed were taken off the scheduled rotation and consistent with CDC guidelines will not be permitted to return to work until they have completed a 14-day quarantine and are symptom-free or receive a negative COVID-19 test result.
Fatty’s and their management prioritizes the health and safety of ALL customers and employees and so like many other businesses when they learn of exposure or someone experiencing symptoms (even when they haven’t tested positive for COVID-19) we take additional precautions, such as closing for deep cleaning, which is why Fatty’s is closed today and will only reopen when everything is completed.
Fatty’s continues to follow federal, state, and local public health guidance regarding social distancing and wearing face coverings. All employees are required to wear masks at all times for our customer safety and employees are required to complete a daily health screening before each shift.
DeKalb County Online applauds the management team at Fatty’s for their professional and timely action.
