Domino’s Closes After Positive Test Result

A Domino’s Pizza in Jamestown has temporarily closed after an employee recently tested positive for COVID-19.

Adam Baldwin, owner of the 936 E. Second St. store in Jamestown, confirmed that a positive test result came back for one employee. He said the store was closed so additional employees could be tested.

A sign announcing the closure was posted on the store’s front door.

“The store has been cleaned, and we’re just waiting on the rest of the results,” said Baldwin, noting that Domino’s has been in constant contact with the Chautauqua County Department of Health. “They said we’re actually doing more than what we need to.”

Baldwin owns several local Domino’s. He said the East Second Street location could reopen as soon as this Friday, though final decisions have not been made.

“We’re just making sure it’s safe for our employees and our customers,” Baldwin said.


Three new COVID-19 cases were reported Monday, bringing the total in Chautauqua County to 179. The new cases, according to the county Health Department, involve a person under the age of 18, a man in his 50s and a man in his 70s.

There remains 37 active cases for those who continue to recover under orders from local health officials.

In all, 511 county residents are under quarantine/isolation. Not all of those being monitored are confirmed to have COVID-19 but have either shown symptoms, are awaiting results or have risk factors.

To date there have been 135 recoveries, seven deaths and 18,158 negative test results.
