James Beard Award-winning chef Nancy Silverton, who has been working to feed out-of-work restaurant employees, has been diagnosed with COVID-19, according to an announcement Friday from her partner, who says he tested negative.

The chef-proprietor of Mozza tested positive for coronavirus, according to blog post from her partner Michael Krikorian, who says he and Silverton took their tests on March 27, and got their positive results three days later.

Krikorian tweeted: “What i love to write is Nancy has has no symptoms. She is in lockdown at San Quarantine, aka her home, with her cellie Michael Krikorian who tested, somehow, negative. They have got hooked to two shows. `The Restaurant’ and, of all things `Let’s Make A Deal’.”

A day after her diagnosis, Silverton suspended operations at her Mozza restaurants, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Her Mozza restaurants had been participating in the Lee Initiative’s efforts to serve as a relief center providing food to restaurant workers in need.
