NISKAYUNA — Customers at the Wendy’s restaurant at 3421 State St. between Oct. 19 and Oct. 26 may have been exposed to COVID-19 by an employee who worked there those days, the Schenectady County Public Health Services said Friday.
The employee worked 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. the entire week Oct. 19-23, and again on Monday, Oct. 26, county officials said. The county has identified and quarantined close contacts of the individual.
County officials believe the risk of public exposure was low, but said members of the public who visited the restaurant during those times, including using the drive-thru as well as walk-in customers, should monitor themselves for symptoms of COVID-19 for 14 days from that date and consider getting tested.
Anyone with even mild symptoms is encouraged to seek testing and treatment.
Wendy’s has followed all guidance from Schenectady County Public Health Services and has fully cooperated during the investigation, county officials said.
