**We are TEMPORARILY CLOSED**
Dear Joe’s Bakery Customers, Friends & Family,
We hope that you and your families are continuing to stay safe and healthy during this time.
We have had a second employee test positive for COVID-19. This individual did not have any access to customers and last worked on May 15th. Due to our business size and the absence of two employees we have decided to close for the next 14 days. During the time we are closed we will have the building professionally deep cleaned and sanitized.
From the beginning we have followed all steps necessary to ensure the safety of our employees, customers, and family. We have followed the guideline set forth by Austin Public Health for food service essential employees.
*Ensuring our employees wear protective gloves and masks at all times
*Reducing our staff shifts to ensure we practice appropriate social distancing while working
*Reducing business hours as well as service areas for takeout options only
*Sanitizing all employee workstations on the hour.
As Essential Personnel, we are proud of the steps we have taken to serve our community, unfortunately, we are not immune to this virus. Please continue to wash, sanitize, wear masks, and practice appropriate social distancing. We appreciate your loyalty and support as we continue to weather this pandemic, together. God Bless.
