The Gallatin City-County Health Department announced Wednesday that Dave’s Sushi would be allowed to reopen if the business can meet a slate of corrective actions from the health department.

A release from the health department stated that Gallatin City-County Health Officer Lori Christenson rescinded a closure order on the downtown Bozeman restaurant. The agency determined that there was “no longer an imminent health hazard” that would keep Dave’s Sushi from reopening.
