Lavonia Chick-Fil-A Closes After Employee Tests Positive for COVID-19

Chick-Fil-A in Lavonia is closed temporarily after at least one employee tested positive for COVID-19.

In a statement released by the Corporate office in Atlanta late Wednesday, the Company confirmed the store had closed to clean and disinfect.

“Our highest priority is the health and well-being of our Team Members and Guests. After learning that Team Members at Chick-fil-A Lavonia were diagnosed with COVID-19, the restaurant proactively closed and took precautionary measures, including disinfecting and deep cleaning the restaurant. Safe service is our top priority and our restaurants continue to follow CDC and local health department guidelines.”

A spokesperson for the Company tells WLHR News franchisees Will and Ashley Lowe proactively took steps to close the store when they learned of the positive test results.

They plan to re-open the store early next week.

On their Web site, Chick-fil-A outlines the steps they are taking to keep staff and customers safe.

“Behind the scenes we are working with the CDC, local governments and health departments, our operations, delivery, mobile app, food safety and Customer CARES teams to constantly review the evolving situation and adapt to help protect the health of anyone who orders Chick-fil-A during this time,” the Web site states.
