SCHENECTADY – Schenectady County Public Health Services Monday issued a COVID advisory for Katie O’Byrnes Irish Pub and Restaurant and an employee there who has tested positive for the virus.

The employee worked at the establishment from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Nov. 5, the county said.

Health officials have identified and quarantined close contacts of the individual, officials said, and Katie O’Byrnes has followed all guidance and cooperated fully.

“Although SCPHS believes there is a low risk of exposure, members of the public who sat inside the restaurant during that time should monitor themselves for symptoms of COVID-19 for 14 days from that date and consider getting tested,” the count said in a release.

If symptoms develop, individuals should stay home and contact their doctor and public health at 518-386-2824 option 2 for further guidance.
