UPDATE 14 May 2013 13:10: We’re hearing from multiple sources that the suspect is the new Zeffirellis vehicle Copa. If so one can wonder if Brazilian BBQ is a bit trickier to cook than pasta.
UPDATE 14 May 2013 14:40: Copa have now made a statement on their facebook page:
The Copa has been cooperating with ACT Health to determine the cause of a suspected food health issue over the weekend and once confirmed we will update our patrons with news as soon as possible.
While working with ACT Health, The Copa has taken the opportunity to temporarily close to resolve a ventilation issue that is prohibiting the extraction of smoke caused from cooking over hot coals in the restaurant.
We appreciate your ongoing support and expect to be open as soon as possible.
UPDATE 14 May 2013 17:50: We appear to have a one-restaurant health crisis underway:
Expect delays at Canberra & Calvary Hospital Emergency Department’s due to increased presentations.
