Talking to WMAR-2 News owner Jackie McCusker says running a restaurant during COVID-19 has become a game of chance.

"I'm calling it the game of whack-a-mole," she said. "We are having to just, whatever's in front of us, take care of it and operate as if we're going to go 100 percent."

As a result of the latest positive case Nacho Mama has decided to scale back on dining options. Carryout and outdoor dining will be the only way to enjoy the menu.

"We felt this was the safest option," said McCusker.

According to the restaurant's Facebook page the employee who tested positive last worked on Wednesday, July 15 in the bar area. Since than, the restaurant has been sanitized and workers who may have had contact with the employee have been asked to self isolate.

McCusker says if an employee tests positive you just have to take action.

"You just hope it’s going to be a day where everybody’s safe and everybody’s healthy," she said. "The reality is that there has been and there will be times when people call in and did not feel good. We've had to say get tested. You go from there."
