Dominick’s Sandwiches and Italian Delicatessen in Fallbrook has been open for 38 years.
On Thursday, the owner, Dominick Grossi Jr., decided to temporarily close the deli although there are no mandated guidelines.
He closed because one of his employees had contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.
“I care about my customers, not just my business, but my customers and my employees. And I thought it was important to be sure that we were doing the right thing because there’s an influx coming in of the new variant and everybody’s kind of blowing it off and pretending like nothings going on but the reality is that people are still getting sick,” said Grossi Jr.
