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.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
