Sotto Sotto, a popular Toronto restaurant in the city’s Yorkville area has temporarily closed due to possible COVID-19 exposure.
The Italian restaurant issued a statement on September 30, announcing their voluntary closure after being made aware of a possible contact with coronavirus.
Despite Toronto Public Health stating that they may remain open, Sotto Sotto decided to make the temporary decision to close their location in order to clean and fully sanitize its restaurant.
“The full team at Sotto Sotto Toronto is in self-isolation and will get tested for COVID-19,” said the restaurant.
“All contact tracing details to be shared with Toronto Public Health and those who they deem to be at risk will be contacted.”
Another popular Italian restaurant in Toronto has temporarily closed after an employee tested positive for coronavirus. Gusto101 had shared the news of their confirmed case and closed the restaurant for thorough cleaning.
For those with reservations at Sotto Sotto, guests will be contacted to reschedule or make cancellations.
“Your comfort and safety are paramount to the Sotto experience; we appreciate and love you, and will open again shortly,” said the statement.
The restaurant also has a second location in Oakville and states that it remains unaffected and welcomes guests to join them for dine-in, patio, or take out orders.
