Aug 20 2020, 2:10 pm

An Italian restaurant in downtown Edmonton has temporarily closed after the spouse of one of its kitchen staff tested positive for coronavirus.

Uccellino said there’s no evidence yet that any staff have caught the virus, but it’s still making all employees get tested before returning to work, the business said in an Instagram post Thursday.

“While we have not been legally mandated to close, we are prioritizing the safety and well-being of our customers by taking this precaution,” it said.

Uccellino is known for its pasta, meat-based entrees, and wide selection of wines. The Jasper Avenue eatery has not set a reopening date yet, but said it will welcome back customers once all employees receive a negative coronavirus test.
