QUEENSBURY -- An employee at Martha’s Dandee Creme, one of the Lake George-area’s most popular businesses, has tested positive for COVID-19.
Martha’s says the employee worked at the ice cream stand on September 18, 21, and 22.
The business is closing to allow other employees who came in contact with the person to quarantine. Martha’s says it was not forced to close by Warren County Public Health Services, it is choosing to out of abundance of caution.
Warren County Public Health Services believes the risk of customers being exposed is low because of the precautions that Martha’s has taken. Health officials say people who visited Martha’s on those dates should self-monitor for symptoms.
It is unclear if Martha’s will reopen after the two-week period is over. It was slated to close for the season on October 12.
