Dairy Queen in Chelmsford temporarily closes food service


Restaurant says it has had no active COVID-19 cases, but rather a proactive approach to help stop the spread of the virus

Dairy Queen in Chelmsford says the restaurant has not been affected by the current rise in COVID-19 cases, but has decided to suspend its food service until further notice.

“We have the public interest in mind in closing our dining option at this time,” the restaurant posted on Facebook on Nov. 9.

“Based on the recent increase in COVID-19 cases in Greater Sudbury and outlying areas, we have decided to take a preventative and proactive approach to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in the community.

“To clarify, Dairy Queen Chelmsford, has not been affected by the current outbreak. “

Until further notice, the restaurant will only offer take-out, drive-thru and curbside pick-up services.

The restaurant is open 7 days a week from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Customers entering the building must wear a mask, as directed by Public Health Sudbury & Districts.

Anyone entering the store without a mask will be prompted for contact tracing information at the time of ordering and will be asked to wait outside the store.

As the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Greater Sudbury continues to rise, a number of local businesses have temporarily closed due to employees or customers testing positive for the virus, including McDonald’s locations in Chelmsford and Hanmer, who have both since reopened.

Chelmsford’s Home Hardware recently closed after a customer tested positive, forcing the store to close and do a thorough cleaning of the premises.
