Earlier this week, Los Angeles County officials announced that restaurants with confirmed cases of COVID-19 will be posted on the Los Angeles County of Department of Public Health website. This is similar to the County’s running lists for nursing homes, jails, prisons, shelters, treatment centers, and institutional settings, according the the Los Angeles Times.

A number of county restaurants had employees test positive for the coronavirus, including notable chef Nancy Silverton, and a worker at Gjusta. Silverton has since fully recovered. Gjusta is now reopen in Venice.

County director Dr. Barbara Ferrer also noted that this restaurant list will be available “later this week.” But as of today, there is not one posted on the health department’s website.
