GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — A popular restaurant chain in Downtown Grand Junction is closed until further notice due to a COVID-19 outbreak. Bin 707, Taco Party, and Bin Burger all closed immediately after one positive case mid-September.
“We have had several more positives since then, but despite recommendations to stay open, we acted quickly and prevented would have become a significant outbreak,” Bin 707 stated in a Facebook post.
We have lots of challenges trying to navigate this. There is not a rule book. The rules we do follow aren’t enforced in our community and people generally aren’t interested in business enforcing policy. Unlike the airlines, however, we haven’t been given a choice. We are either open and at risk or make up another 60-70 people in the unemployment line. Again, this isn’t about politics. This is about people getting sick by trying to provide a service for other people, doing so because we have been given no other choice. We will reopen, maybe next week. Maybe the following. We may not make it through winter but we have no other choice than to keep pushing. We will continue to care for all of our staff our purveyors and our community when we do reopen. In the mean time, wear a mask. If you are sick, stay home.Bin 707 Facebook Page
