The calendar hasn’t been kind to Chipotle.
Exactly one month after the Mexican fast-food chain temporarily closed all of its U.S. restaurants to hold staff meetings on food safety, the ugly norovirus has reared its ugly head.
On Tuesday, a restaurant in Billerica, Massachusetts, voluntarily shut down after four workers called in sick with stomach ailments, reported Reuters. Richard Berube, Billerica’s public health director, told reporters the restaurant has been cleaned to his satisfaction and that the chain’s new food safety protocol has been followed. The store is expected to reopen on Thursday.
