A Sechelt restaurant has closed its doors to the public temporarily due to a positive COVID-19 test.
Golden City Restaurant at 5550 Wharf Ave. announced Nov. 28 on social media it was closing for 14 days due to a positive test at the restaurant, which was serving takeout only as a precaution.
Coast Reporter reached out to the owners but they declined to comment at this time.
The social media post also indicated Village Restaurant on Cowrie Street would close temporarily as a precaution since staff work at both locations.
During a Nov. 30 VCH board meeting, chief medical health officer Dr. Patricia Daly said there has been very little transmission of COVID-19 at restaurants and other businesses and health authorities work with locations to ensure proper protocols are in place.
As of Dec. 1 neither restaurant was listed on VCH’s public exposure website, which provides locations and business names when there is a possible risk of COVID-19 exposure to the public.
