JAMESTOWN — Five workers at Jamestown area Domino’s Pizza locations are currently awaiting COVID-19 test results.
Nichole Mata, the Domino’s Pizza District Manager, tells WNYNewsNow that three employees at the East Second Street location and two at the Lakewood location are awaiting COVID-19 test results.
Mata says some of the employees were pizza delivery drives while others worked in the kitchen.
“Obviously other precautions are going to be taking place if other results come back positive,” explained Mata. “If that is so, we might have to have all of our employees tested if they have not already.”
She believes that the five were possibly gathered in a group over the weekend and encountered a known positive case of COVID-19.
“I just heard about all of this stuff yesterday (Monday),” said Mata. “I hear there are other things going on at other places as well, it must have been a huge group of people, from what I heard went to New York City and the ones that (went) there tested positive for it (COVID-19).”
The manager says safety protocols like contactless delivery and carryout are already ongoing at her local establishments.
Mata says those who are awaiting test results are currently quarantined at home and if they do not test positive will be allowed to return to work. If they do test positive, Mata says while they recovery their position will be retained.
She says the Dunkirk and Warren, Pennsylvania, locations do not have any known COVID-19 exposures currently.
