Mike Garibaldi is shutting down the dining rooms at his three Garibaldi’s Pizza locations and returning to take-out only as COVID numbers rise in Shelby County. “I have eight grandkids I want to be able to see and a bunch of employees I want to protect, both their health and their paychecks,” he said.
