Stay Safe and Stay Resilient!
We should note, earlier tonight we learned a 20 year old employee at Raising Cane’s in Waxahachie tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday. This has led the restaurant to close for 14 days and go through a deep cleaning. In the meantime, many are wondering is it still safe to eat out.
