This afternoon, though, Durant's announced via social media that one of its "cherished team/family members has reported to us that they have tested positive for Covid-19. Upon receiving this news, we made an immediate & unanimous decision to close the restaurant for at least another 14 days … and re-evaluate the situation/environment then."
The post says the dining room was never at more than 40 percent of its original capacity. It says the Durant’s experience was redesigned around social distancing guidelines.
"Although the guidelines outlined for re-opening businesses & restaurants in Arizona are NOT robust," it reads, "… we feel a direct & personal connection to our community to be transparent and to protect those who support us of all ages & health conditions …"
Durant's has been around since 1950, and was recently named one of our Top 100 restaurants in Phoenix.
