Heights Taco & Tamale, on Kavanaugh Boulevard in Little Rock's Pulaski Heights, has closed temporarily after an employee tested positive for covid-19.
The restaurant posted Monday night on its Facebook page that, "Effective immediately we are closing so that we may have team members tested for covid-19, and for deep cleaning and sanitization.
"We have partnered with Kavanaugh Pharmacy to provide 'Rapid Result Testing' for all of our team members" and will reopen once "we determine it is safe."
Also on Facebook, Fassler Hall on East Capitol Avenue in downtown Little Rock had closed temporarily because it had several employees awaiting test results and was unable to staff the restaurant without them.
"We fully anticipate that these results, which should arrive later today, will be negative because these employees had little contact with the person who had a potential exposure," the German-inspired beer hall posted on Facebook on Wednesday. "We remain committed to our new deep cleaning procedures and the health and safety of our customers remain our top priority."
