What’s the Problem?
According to the Oneida County Health Department, an employee with Hepatitis A worked at the Taco Bell at 1038 Glenwood Ave. in Oneida, New York, from June 23, 2020, to July 3, 2020. Officials said customers who ate at that Taco Bell on June 26, June 30, July 1 and July 3 can be vaccinated to prevent the virus.
Another employee at a Taco Bell in Rome, New York, may also have exposed people who bought food at the restaurant, according to WKTV. The employee was infectious while working at the restaurant during June and early July 2020.
Taco Bell corporate released the following statement regarding the infection at the Rome location:
“As soon the franchise operator of this Rome, NY location learned that a team member tested positive for the hepatitis A virus, they began working closely with Taco Bell and local health officials. The restaurant was thoroughly sanitized and all team members will be offered vaccinations. Ensuring the health and wellbeing of our team members and our customers is our highest priority, which is why we are taking this matter so seriously.”
