Wendy's Tamuning closed Thursday to allow the restaurant to implement measures to protect its employees and customers from COVID-19 risk.
"The health, safety and well-being of our employees and community are our priorities. (On Thursday), we were informed that an employee at our Tamuning location tested positive for COVID-19 through contact tracing," Wendy's Guam stated in a press release.
The employee last worked on Monday evening from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m., without symptoms, according to the company.
"Wendy’s Guam is providing support to this employee and their family. The employee is now in quarantine, receiving the care and treatment necessary for their recovery," the company stated in the release.
