The owner of Hariri Chickens at Kogarah has thanked customers for their support since news broke that a COVID-19 positive person visited on New Year's Eve.
Moe Hariri wrote on Facebook: "We'd like to thank you all for your continued support given recent developments. Your outpouring of support and messages have meant the world to us".
Mr Hariri said all staff members, including management, had tested negative for COVID-19 and had been able to return to work after a mandatory 72 hours in isolation.
"Results have returned negative for all staff members and the crew are cleared [to] work," he said.
He said two deep cleans and sanitisations of the premises were conducted; the first on January 2 at 10.45pm "on the night of receiving the news of the contact".
"The second and more thorough deep clean and sanitisation was conducted by Sydney Sanitisation crew on January 4 at 6am," he said.
"Both deep cleans were conducted by professionals, with certificates of completion."
Mr Hariri said the store was open and cleared for full operation under current NSW Health regulations.
"Our outdoor seating area has reopened for dine-in," he said, adding takeaway was available in person and via one of their delivery partners.
"Thank you once again for standing by us. We look forward to seeing you soon," he said.

Anyone who was in the store at 140 Railway Parade, Kogarah, during that time is considered a casual contact. They should monitor for symptoms and get tested immediately if they occur, and self-isolate until they receive a negative result.
Earlwood Bardwell Park RSL Club also remains on the list of case locations following previous Public Health Alerts for the venue's gaming area on Monday, December 28, 2020, between 8.52pm and 11.30pm.
Anyone who was in the gaming area for an hour or more is a close contact and must get tested and self-isolate for 14 days regardless of the result.
Anyone who attended the gaming room for less than an hour is a casual contact and must monitor for symptoms and get tested if any occur.
There are currently no locations in Sutherland Shire included on the list.
