An employee at Hopkins Icehouse in Texarkana, Arkansas, texted positive for COVID-19, and the restaurant has announced that it is temporarily closing.

Lisa Matlock, who is the general manager for both Hopkins locations gave the following statement...

"We have closed the Hopkins Icehouse on the Arkansas side and have called in a professional sanitizing team to do the job on the place. We will be testing our employees as well and the Arkansas side will remain closed until all employees test negative. Then, at that time, we will re-evaluate."

Matlock estimates at least a week to two weeks that the Arkansas location remains closed.
