Ghostlight’s second location on South Patterson Boulevard next to Old Scratch Pizza remains open and operating for its regular hours. The staff member who is awaiting COVID-19 test results has not had any contact with employees of that “Midtown” coffee shop, Ghostlight owners said.

Several local restaurants and coffee shops have taken similar actions or dealt with a similar situation, usually following an employee’s, or multiple employees’, positive COVID-19 test.
