According to a statement posted on Monday on the Sauced Facebook page, the restaurant will be closed until its staff comes back with negative COVID-19 test results.

The post says that a customer was present at the restaurant on Tuesday but didn't have a fever until Thursday, at which point they got tested immediately, only to find out they were coronavirus-positive on Saturday.

According to the post by Sauced, an employee also tested positive Monday morning, but that was unrelated to Tuesday's customer, as the employee who tested positive has been in quarantine all week.

All staff is being tested and will not be able to work until a negative test result is provided. Sauced is also working to follow all CDC and Vanderburgh County Health Department guidelines.

It was another cool, though overall pleasant day across the Tri-State - after only seeing temperatures dive as low as 22° early this morning, peak temperatures ended up climbing a few degrees higher than Thursday's; that being said, Evansville’s high temperature of 27° Was still 15° below average for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, temperatures will gradually fall for 23° around dinner time back down to 19° by10 PM. A weak northerly wind flow most of the night paired with our crystal clear skies will cause temperatures to of fall back down into the mid to low teens once again - Evansville's anticipated low temperature of 12° will mark or coolest since the morning of January 7th.
