Shares of El Pollo Loco Holdings Inc. /zigman2/quotes/203043086/composite LOCO -0.41% fell nearly 6% in the extended session Tuesday after the fast-food company said that reduced operating hours for many of its locations and temporary closures related to the pandemic hit sales in the fourth quarter.

System-wide comparable-restaurant sales for the fourth quarter fell 0.2%, contrasting with growth of 3.9% in the year-ago period. Moreover, the company has spent about $2.5 million in COVID-related charges, mostly related to leaves of absence and overtime pay, of which $1.7 million weren't expected, Pollo Loco said. Shares of Pollo Loco had ended the regular trading day up 4.6%.
