As of Monday, the health district had over 300 cases that still needed to be interviewed as a result of testing positive for COVID-19 — and the district is continuing to receive upwards of 80 new positive cases per day, according to a statement from the CCCHD.
The statement said the district is making adjustments and will now send informational packets instead of making direct contact with positive cases.
Another downtown Springfield restaurant, Stella Bleu, located at 20 N. Fountain Ave., temporarily closed this week after an employee was exposed to COVID-19, according to a social media post from the restaurant on Tuesday.
Darin Mitchell, chef and co-owner of Stella Bleu said the restaurant will open today at 5 p.m. for dinner service.
During the closure, the restaurant was thoroughly cleaned and employees were tested, the restaurant said.
“Our utmost concern for our staff and patrons is a priority,” the restaurant said. “These are difficult times, and we appreciate your support, your business and positive vibes.”
