LOS ANGELES (CNS) — The iconic Pink's Hot Dogs stand announced Thursday it will close for two months due to the increase in coronavirus cases in the region.

In a post on its Twitter page, Pink's said the decision to close beginning Sunday night is being done "in order to keep our patrons and staff safe from the current Covid surge."

The stand on La Brea Avenue near Melrose Avenue will remain open through 7 p.m. Sunday.
