MADISON, Wis. — Food Fight Restaurant Group, which includes nearly 20 restaurants in the Madison area, says it will once again require masks for all staff and customers starting next week.

The group said in a social media post the decision is being made after some fully-vaccinated employees contracted COVID-19.

The requirement will go into effect on Monday, August 9, at all Food Fight restaurants. People dining at the restaurants will need to have their masks on when they are not at their table. Those who do not bring their masks can get one for free at the restaurant’s host desk.

In the social media post, the group says many employees have vulnerable people at home.

“We owe it to our community and co-workers to continue to make health and safety our top priority,” the post said.

The restaurant group is asking anyone with a fever, cough, shortness of breath, or recent contact with a person who tested positive for COVID to stay home. More information on their health and safety precautions can be found on their website.

Food Fight restaurants include Aldo’s Cafe, Bar Corallini, Bassett Street Brunch Club, Canteen, Cento, The Coopers Tavern, Craftsman Table and Tap, DLUX, Eldorado Grill, Everly, Fresco, Hubbard Avenue Diner, Johnny Delmonico’s Steakhouse, Luigi’s Pizza, Market Street Diner, Miko Poke, Monty’s Blue Plate Diner, Steenbock’s on Orchard, and Tex Tubb’s Taco Palace.
