Coronavirus: Springfield restaurant closes until December

Another Springfield restaurant has closed for the time being due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.

Guerra’s Krazy Taco, located at 229 N. Belmont Ave., will be closed until December, a Facebook post on the restaurant’s page said.

“Sorry to say, we are going to close until Dec. No one is sick, we just want to stay that way. Please be patient as we work thru this krazy problem causing the world problems,” the post said.

Felix Guerra, the owner of the restaurant, told the News-Sun in October that his business was down 40 to 45 percent.

“Its not as easy as people have thought,” Guerra said. “When you’re used to getting 100 percent business and you’re down to 40-45 percent it’s tough to make everything go.”

He added, “If we all just hang together and do this thing right, I think we will be okay,"

Last week, The Fountain on Main, a 50′s style soda shop located on 14 E. Main St., announced that they were closing until after Thanksgiving.

A Facebook post on the restaurant’s page said that the decision was made “out of an abundance of safety.”

“We will voluntarily close (until after Thanksgiving) due to contact tracing regarding COVID-19,” the post said. “So, very sorry for this inconvenience."
