Ohio restaurant reports COVID-19 case

JACKSON, oh. (WSAZ) – On Sunday, the Jackson County Health Department was notified of four new laboratory-confirmed cases of COVID-19.

In a press release, they announced that one of the confirmed cases is an employee of Dakota’s Roadhouse in Jackson.

The health department says the individual and company management did everything they were asked to do and acted quickly and professionally. JCHD says the restaurant established plans and procedures to clean and disinfect the building.

There are no other sick people associated with this event.

During the interview and contact search process, no client was identified who has been in contact with the case or is at risk.

The Jackson County Health Department says there is currently no evidence to show that COVID-19 is transmitted through food and that they do not believe that anyone who has eaten at Dakota’s is at risk of contracting the facility virus.

JCHD wants to emphasize that no one or any company should be blamed for having COVID-19.

The press release also says that COVID-19 is widespread throughout the state of Ohio and the United States, so it is important that everyone wash their hands for more than 20 seconds. Practicing social distancing and wearing masks will also help prevent the spread of the virus.
