As the delta variant of the coronavirus continues to surge, two more Charlotte restaurants have closed temporarily after employees may have been exposed to COVID-19.

On Saturday, The Stanley announced it would close through Sunday after an employee may have been exposed to the delta variant of the virus, management posted on Facebook.

The closing was “out of an abundance of caution” and will allow for a deep clean and for staff to get tested, management posted on Facebook Saturday.

The Stanley is a farm-driven restaurant on East 7th Street owned and operated by James Beard-nominated Chef Paul Verica.

Out of similar caution, Mama Ricotta’s Restaurant on South Kings Drive closed temporarily on Friday after some employees exhibited “troubling symptoms,” management posted on Facebook.
