NJ Barber Shop Steps In To Help When Restaurant Staff Gets COVID


Having good neighbors is so important, like when you need to borrow a cup of sugar or when your employee tests positive for COVID and you have to close down. That’s what happened to Würstbar in Jersey City when a worker was exposed to the virus and they decided the safest course of action was to shut down temporarily. But their good friends down the street at Virile Barber Shop didn’t want to see the restaurant lose any business, so they stepped in to help.

Less than 24 hours later, workers from the barber shop started volunteering to take shifts to keep Würstbar open. “The weather is too nice out to let our neighbors at Würstbar stay closed!” Virile owner Andre Fersa posted on Instagram. “I’ve taken over the bar and am selling PRETZELS, beer, wine and cider for outdoor seating only. Come on by and support this great staff.”

Würstbar staff was beyond grateful, singing the praises of their generous neighbors who pitched in and encouraging followers to go get a cut at the barber shop to support their fellow local business. And now all of the restaurant staff has tested negative and they’re back to normal operations at Würstbar.
