BERKLEY, Mich. (WXYZ) — Vinsetta Garage in Berkley is expected to reopen Wednesday after one of their servers tested positive for COVID-19.

The popular restaurant posted to Facebook that they were notified of the employees diagnosis on Tuesday.

"They remain asymptomatic and have been advised to take a follow-up test to assure accuracy. They last worked on July 2 and wore a mask throughout their shift," the restaurant wrote on Facebook.

Vinsetta Garage closed for the remainder of the day on Tuesday following notification of the employee's positive test.

"We notified the Oakland County Health Department and while it is not mandated that we close for an asymptomatic presumed positive case; we are doing so out of an abundance of caution for our crew (and giving them time to trace any interaction with this server) and our guests (whose trust means the world to us). We also know that a day off is much deserved for the stalwart crew at Vinsetta Garage, who continue to do all they can do in times unlike any other."
