BALTIMORE (WJZ) – Gertrude’s Restaurant, located in the Baltimore Museum of Art, is closed temporarily due to one of the employees at the restaurant testing positive for COVID-19, according to the restaurant’s Facebook on Saturday.
The employee had worked at the restaurant Wednesday, July 8, Friday, July 10, and Sunday, July 12 before testing positive for the coronavirus.
The restaurant stated they will be contacting anyone who dined at the restaurant during the period the employee was working and all staff will immediately be tested for COVID-19.
