Staff at two McDonald’s have tested positive for the coronavirus, with both chains still open.
Both affected branches are in Birmingham – Bordesley Green, off Belchers Lane, and the Yardley eatery on Coventry Road.
Two employees have been told to self-isolate and both branches have been deep cleaned.
A source told Birmingham Live: “I was told that staff members have Covid at these restaurants and have been asked to quarantine.
"One of them – I'm not sure which – had worked two shifts before finding out they were positive.
“So there may be a risk that the virus has been passed on. I’ve not been told anything else since so assuming no one has got it."
A McDonald's spokesman confirmed: “Last month one employee at our Bordesley Green restaurant self-isolated, having tested positive for Covid-19.
"As a precautionary measure the restaurant was deep cleaned and all employees were contacted.
"Last week one employee at our Yardley restaurant self-isolated, having tested positive for Covid-19, and again as a precautionary measure the restaurant was deep cleaned and all employees were informed.
"We have a number of safety measures in place to help keep our people safe, including temperature checks at the start of each shift, face coverings, regular hand washing and the use of hand sanitiser."
