What’s the Problem?
An employee infected with Hepatitis A worked at the Taco Bell at 1038 Glenwood Ave. in Oneida, New York, for at least 7 shifts between June 23 and July 3, 2020, according to WKTV.
Madison County health officials said customers who ate at the restaurant on 4 of those days – June 26, June 30, July 1 and July 3 – can be vaccinated to prevent the virus.
WKTV reported that an employee at a Taco Bell in Rome, New York, may have also exposed people who bought food at the restaurant. The employee was infectious while working at the restaurant for at least 3 weeks in June and early July 2020.
