Health
officials are warning that anyone who visited two restaurants in Suffolk County

Suffolk Health Department says people who ate at Senor Taco Mexican Grill &
Bar on Route 25A in Mount Sinai on Nov. 20 or 24 may have been exposed.

The other
restaurant warning is for people who visited Phil’s Restaurant, on Wading River

Health officials say more than one person connected with
each of these restaurants has the virus.

Those who
were potentially exposed are urged to monitor themselves for symptoms for 14
days after visiting either restaurant.

Statement from Phil at Phil’s Restaurant to News 12:

“Phil’s has been 100 percent transparent with the Department
of Health having several conversations with a DOH nurse. We voluntarily called
311 during this situation to gain as much direction as we possibly could.
Phil’s closed on November 25th and 26th so that we could
thoroughly review the staff work schedule to ensure that anyone that might have
been in contact or worked with a positive staff member was not in the building
during this period and remained out thru the quarantine time period. I feel we
have taken all the necessary measures to be one of the safest restaurants from
day one of reopening, to keep our customers and staff In the safest environment
possible. All of us at Phil’s would like to thank our loyal customers for their
continued support.” -Philip Marcario

Senor Taco Statement:

Senor Taco Express located in Mt Sinai continues to follow the safety guidelines provided by NY State & has been working closely with the Suffolk County Health Department over the last several days to help with contact tracing. Senor Taco Mt Sinai is regularly disinfecting the store and was closed for business on November 26, 2020 for a deep cleaning. However, it is important to note that our business is 95% pick up & curbside with limited interaction between customers and our staff. We have also been operating under very limited occupancy since March of this year. Furthermore, Senor Taco Mt Sinai has continued to follow a strict mask wearing guideline for both employees and customers. We also have markings to reinforce 6 feet of physical distancing & designated hand sanitizing stations to ensure proper hygiene. To limit customer contact even further, Senor Taco Mt Sinai recently invested in new technology that allows for online ordering, QR bar code menu scanning & handheld devices to help support our curbside pick-up orders. Senor Taco Mt Sinai continues to take all measures and precautions necessary to keep our valued community and staff healthy and safe during these difficult times.As always thank you for your support.

Sincerely,

Senor Taco Mt Sinai
