Fayette Mall Chick-fil-A closed until Monday after large number of illnesses

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WDKY) - A spike in employee illnesses has led to the Chick-fil-A inside Fayette Mall to close for days.

The Lexington-Fayette County Health Department says the restaurant decided to voluntarily close because of a high number of employees calling in sick.

The restaurant expected to re-open Friday, but managers opted to keep it closed to deep clean the restaurant and sanitize equipment.

Chick-fil-A will allow the health department to inspect the restaurant prior to it opening Monday. No other Fayette Mall restaurants have reported similar illnesses.
