COLONIE — The Albany County Department of Health temporarily closed Delmonico’s Italian Steakhouse on Thursday after three employees tested positive for COVID-19.
The state Department of Health will be at the Central Avenue restaurant on Friday to test the remaining employees for the virus. It will remain closed pending the test results.
The restaurant has been fully compliant, said Mary Rozak, spokeswoman for Albany County Executive Dan McCoy.
Two of the employees who tested positive live in Schenectady County and the third lives in Albany County. Their conditions were not known.
The Department of Health is recommending anyone who has been to the restaurant and has symptoms of the virus, or any concerns, to get tested.

Delmonico’s opened in 1998 in Syracuse. It has five locations in New York state and one in Florida. Locally, it has the Central Avenue restaurant and one in Clifton Park.
It had been offering curbside take out at the Central Avenue location and had erected a large tent behind the establishment to better allow for social distancing when sit down dining was allowed last month.
