Unfortunately, one of our Salt Lick Driftwood team members has tested positive for COVID-19 as of June 5.
This is a separate incident from the Round Rock employee.
The employee is currently quarantined and none of our other staff members are experiencing symptoms.

All Driftwood staff members will be tested for COVID-19.

In response, the Driftwood location will be temporarily closed while a professional sanitation crew deep cleans and disinfects the restaurant. Once all employee test results have been determined negative, we will update you on our opening plans.
We remain committed to the safety of our guests and crew and are deeply thankful to the community for the support as we get through this pandemic together.
