ELY – Following a coronavirus scare last week, the Dairy Queen Grill and Chill store has reopened.
“The Minnesota Department of Health granted us the green light to reopen our restaurant. Treats and food are once again available through the DQ drive-thru, DQ App, and curbside pickup,” said owner Paul Ivancich.
An employee of the local store tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday, May 10.
According to Ivancich, the employee had not been in the local restaurant since May 4. All other employees were tested at Ely-Bloomenson Community Hospital and the results came back negative.
He said the Ely DQ Grill and Chill has been working to exceed the CDC and MDH guidelines.
“The restaurant has been professionally cleaned and sanitized,” he said. “Thank you to the commercial cleaning team of Bullseye Cleaning Services. We stood beside medical professionals throughout the process for their consultation and approval. We will continue to serve in the safest way possible while adhering to the CDC and MDH guidelines for our staff and customers.”
