Elsie's Plate & Pie temporarily closes after employee tests positive for COVID-19
A popular restaurant in Baton Rouge's Mid-City district announced it would be temporarily closing after one of its employees tested positive for COVID-19.
Elsie's Plate & Pie took to Facebook Tuesday morning to issue the announcement, saying the eatery will be closed for three days to allow employees to get tested, in addition to a thorough cleansing of the building.
On Saturday, Beausoleil Restaurant and Bar also announced a decision to temporarily close their doors and re-open in August. Owners say their decision was based on the rising number of novel coronavirus cases in the state.
