Copy-Chipotle store in Mass. closed on norovirus fears

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - Chipotle says one of its stores in Massachusetts is closed after four employees said they were feeling ill.

The closure comes as Chipotle fights to win back customers following a series of food scares that sickened customers around the country. Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. has said it's instituting a number of food safety procedures to ensure such incidents don't happen again. That includes reminding workers they should stay home if they're not feeling well.

The Denver-based chain says none of the employees at its store in Billerica, Massachusetts, worked while they were sick, and that no customer illnesses have been connected with the restaurant.

A woman who answered the phone for the Billerica Board of Health office declined to comment.
