A Staff is tested positive for Covid-19 at TWO McDonald’s restaurants but both stay open after deep sanitation.
The two workers at separate branches in Birmingham did self-isolation.
McDonald’s confirmed that one employee was tested positive last month and another one just last week.
Both branches were deep cleaned and all staff members have been contacted and checked
Two employees who work at separate branches in Birmingham, one at Bordesley Green and another in Yardley, self-isolated after contracting the virus.
One worker tested positive last month and another last week, according to McDonald’s spoke person.
A source told BirminghamLive: ‘I was told that staff members have COVID at these branches and have been asked to do quarantine.
One of them had worked two shifts before finding out they were positive. So there may be a risk that the virus has been passed on. I’ve not been told anything else since so assuming no one has got it.’
McDonald’s said both branches were deep cleaned and all staff members were contacted.
A spokesman for the fast-food chain said: ‘Last month, we have one employee at our Bordesley Green restaurant who did self-isolation, having tested positive for Covid-19.
‘As a precautionary measure the restaurant was deep cleaned and all employees were contacted. ‘Last week one employee at our Yardley restaurant did a quarantine when tested positive for Covid-19, and again as a precautionary measure the restaurant was deep cleaned and all employees were informed.
We have a number of safety measures in place to help keep our people safe, including temperature checks at the start of each shift, face coverings, regular hand washing, and the use of hand sanitizer.’
