Suffolk County is warning people who recently visited Mannino’s Restaurant or the Village Idiot Irish Pub, both in Oakdale, to get tested as patrons could have been exposed to COVID-19, officials said.

The Department of Health Services issued an advisory Wednesday for anyone who visited the restaurants, both located on Montauk Highway, between Oct. 31 and Nov. 2. County health officials urge those who were potentially exposed to monitor themselves for symptoms for 14 days after visiting either restaurant. 

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
