Two popular fast food restaurants have closed in Mustang. Taco Bell and Sonic both had closed signs posted Wednesday afternoon.
Reports are that both restaurants have employees who tested positive for COVID-19 and have closed temporally for safety precautions and cleaning.
Hungry customers could be seen lined up at the Taco Bell drive-thru. People tried to place orders, but nobody was working at the store. A sign on the Taco Bell door read “Temporary Closed for Cleaning and Sanitizing.”
Taco Bell Corporate officials in a written statement confirmed that an employee had tested positive for COVID-19.
“As soon as the operator of this Mustang, OK location was made aware of an employee who tested positive for COVID-19, the franchisee immediately began working with Taco Bell and local health officials. This restaurant closed immediately for thorough cleaning and sanitizing. Ensuring the health and wellbeing of our team members and our customers is our highest priority and we encourage customers to learn more about Taco Bell’s commitment to safety on our website at http://www.tacobell.com/safety,” the statement read.
At the Sonic, orange cones blocked the entrance. Sonic had a sign posted that read “Closed Due to
Staffing.” Reports are that both restaurants have employees who tested positive for COVID-19 and have closed temporally for safety precautions and cleaning.
