The D.C. Department of Health said it closed a Subway near Howard University (2301 Georgia Avenue NW) yesterday due to the eatery “failing to minimize the presence of insects, rodents and other pests on the premises.”
An employee at that location confirmed this morning that the Subway franchise was closed by the health department, but said it was related to a broken water pipe in the back of the store.
“We solved the problem already,” said the employee, who did not want to be named. “They’re coming for another inspection before noon.”
When asked about the presence of insects, rodents or other pests, the employee said they could not comment.
A spokesperson for Subway could not be reached for comment.
