LUDINGTON, Mich. (AP) - A downstate Michigan restaurant lost thousands of dollars in sales after a busboy said he had COVID-19, but the employee simply wanted a day off and lied.

David Hritco is manager of Timbers Seafood and Steakhouse in Ludington.

Hritco says it’s “heartbreaking.” The restaurant closed Friday and Saturday.

The timing was terrible for the restaurant, which is trying to recover during the peak summer season after months of being closed.

Hritco says the employee confessed to the lie Saturday night.

The manager says it’s now a matter for Ludington police.
