Popular Sacramento restaurants close as COVID omicron spreads

Well-known restaurants around Sacramento are temporarily closing, eliminating indoor dining and taking other drastic steps amid the COVID-19 omicron variant’s rapid spread.

Patrick Mulvaney spoke at a March 2021 press conference to ring in restaurant employees’ vaccine eligibility, encouraging his peers to get theirs. Everyone at Mulvaney and his wife Bobbin’s midtown restaurant, Mulvaney’s B&L, tested negative for the virus last Friday.

By Tuesday morning, enough staff had tested positive that Mulvaney’s B&L shut down for the rest of the week.

“We are disheartened, frustrated and angry but this is the right thing to do for everyone,” Mulvaney’s B&L said in a Facebook post. “This picture from 2005 gives us hope, you can see my old man in the photo behind the chair.

Restaurants Nationwide Close Temporarily As Staff Test Positive for COVID

Restaurants are suddenly in a situation not dissimilar to that of the early pandemic, as the omicron variant of coronavirus sweeps the the country: Case counts are shockingly high, staff and guests are testing positive, and restaurants — the responsible ones, at least — are choosing to close while staff are tested. Restaurants that would otherwise be experiencing some of their most profitable weeks are being forced to reckon with COVID surges. Again.

In New York, where new COVID cases are nearing their highest daily rate since the onset of the pandemic, restaurants started closing in droves during the week of December 13. Now, it’s impossible to scroll Instagram without coming across a post from a favorite restaurant announcing a temporary closure. In some cases staff are testing positive, and in others, it’s diners who have spent prolonged time in the confines of a restaurant’s dining room before discovering they

Pure Eatery in Fountain Square to close

Better-for-you restaurant concept Pure Eatery is closing shop at the end of this year.

After 10 years of operation, the restaurant at 1043 Virginia Ave. will permanently close Dec. 31, said bar manager Jake Stewart.

The business has been claimed by the coronavirus pandemic, specifically higher costs of food and a labor market eschewing the industry, Stewart said.

“COVID ruined everything. We made it through like the hard part; the shutdowns and all that stuff. But now on top of the fact that people still don’t want to work in this industry, the costs of our products have gone up by like 40%. It’s not viable anymore,” Stewart said. “Money was just hemorrhaging out of here on a daily basis without the return in sales that we had prior to COVID.”
