Another Rochester business has shared the news that they are closing temporarily due to COVID-19 concerns.

Great Harvest Bread Co., who has two locations in Rochester, posted on their Facebook page on Friday, November 13th that their West location will be closed the remainder of Friday and also on Saturday.  They are doing this to be safe as a result of some of their staff members being in close contact with people who recently tested positive for COVID-19.

A couple of our staff members have been in close contact with people who recently tested positive for Covid-19. As a PRECAUTIONARY measure, we will be closing the WEST location today at 2pm as well as all day Saturday. This location will reopen when we are confident it is safe to do so (hopefully Monday).
Staff & Customer safety is a priority.
Our downtown Broadway location is still open regular hours Friday & Saturday.
Thanks for your understanding. Stay safe! - Great Harvest Bread Co. Rochester, MN Facebook Page
