UPDATE: Compañeros, Dorset House reopening
Two Dorset restaurants that closed after an employee tested positive for COVID-19 reopen July 30 with a clean bill of health.
Compañeros Mexican Restaurant and the Dorset House are reopening after a pause for deep cleaning and to allow employees to be tested for COVID-19.
Owners Levi and Beth Durgin announced July 25 on social media that the side-by-side restaurants in Dorset were closed after a part-time employee tested positive for the coronavirus.
“All of our tests were negative, so we will be opening (at noon Thursday),” Beth Durgin announced Wednesday in an email update. “Even though the MDH and the CDC didn't require us to close, we went above and beyond their recommendations, as we felt it was in the best interest of our customers and staff.”
The restaurants’ July 25 release said the affected employee had no direct contact with customers.
