Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

wow sounds like you have an epidemic of a viral gastroenteritis infection at your restaurant.

Dr. David :

you need to call your local health department in

Dr. David :

and you need to bleach down your whole restaurant and clean everything from the kitchen to the bathrooms to the service tables everything.

Dr. David :

you might even have to shut down for a few days until everything is cleaned and everyone is better.

Dr. David :

no one returns to work with symptoms of diarrhea or vomitting.

Dr. David :

everyone has to wash hands before and after everything, food preperation, using the bathroom, touching money (which is very dirty).

Dr. David :

this can be a big task,

Dr. David :

but you have to take charge of it , or no one will feel safe eating at your restaurant

Dr. David :

does this make sense?

Dr. David :

the health department can also help advise you with regards to how to clean and when staff can return back to work

Dr. David :

all old food has to be thrown out as well.

Dr. David :
