Officials with the Golden Corral restaurant in Henderson, Kentucky, say the business is temporarily shutting down soon.

The temporary closure will be in effect as of Saturday, Oct. 31.

The restaurant is closing due to the negative impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on business.

Though officials say the closure is temporary, no timeframe has been set as to when the restaurant will be back open, but we're told that factors surrounding the current state of the pandemic will be taken into consideration, such as the number of positive cases in the area, social distancing requirements, a possible vaccine, and others.

As of Tuesday in Henderson County, there were 1,283 total positive cases of COVID-19 confirmed, as well as 32 total COVID-19 deaths.

Kentucky's governor recently released a new list of recommendations for counties in the 'Red Zone', such as Henderson County and multiple other counties surrounding it.

The recommendations encourage residents in such counties to order takeout, avoid non-essential activities outside of the home, and avoid gatherings of any size, which could have an impact on the revenue stream of many businesses within the areas.

Golden Corral's closure comes as the second time the location has closed its doors due to the pandemic.
