Mac and Bob’s ‘confident’ in reopening this week

Local News

SALEM, Va. (WFXR) – After a rough few weeks, Mac and Bob’s Restaurant in Salem is hopeful about being able to reopen this week.

August was a rough month for the establishment as several of their employees tested positive for COVID-19.

As they were working to deep clean and sanitize the restaurant, an accidental electrical fire on Aug. 31 further delayed plans to reopen.

Late last week, Mac and Bob’s posted a video on social media saying that, after cleaning up the restaurant after five employees tested positive for COVID-19 and passing their electrical and mechanical inspection, they anticipate reopening on Tuesday, Sept. 22.
