Charlotte eatery closes again for ongoing investigation of reported illness

By  | 

CHARLOTTE, MI (WILX) -- The Barry-Eaton Health Department (BEDHD) has closed Tequila's Mexican Grill again on Friday.

The restaurant was closed at 11:45 a.m. Friday as BEDHD has received additional information from epidemiology that suggests that illness is not norovirus.

Based on this information and after reviewing additional food handling procedures, the staff has determined it is in the best interest of public health to close the restaurant.

The health department staff will continue to work with the restaurant to insure food handling standards are being met. Once all requirements are implemented, BEDHD will consider re-opening the restaurant.

The source of illness is still unknown and the investigation is still ongoing.

If you have questions or concerns, contact BEDHD's Environmental Health Division at 517-541-2615. For more information, visit here.
