Blood sample tube positive with COVID-19 or novel coronavirus 2019 found in Wuhan, China

Multiple people with ties to another pair of restaurants on Long Island have been diagnosed with coronavirus and recent patrons may have been exposed, Suffolk County health officials warned Wednesday.

Anyone who visited Senor Taco Mexican Grill & Bar on Route 25A in Mount Sinai on Nov. 20 or 24 and anyone who visited Phil’s Restaurant on Wading River Manor Road in Wading River between Nov. 20 and 24 should monitor themselves for symptoms for two weeks and get tested for Covid-19, according to the Suffolk Department of Health Services.

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 or vomiting, or diarrhea, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.

The advisory follows a string of alerts about coronavirus cases tied to four other local eateries, including Tellers in Islip,  Friendly’s in Riverhead and two restaurants in Oakdale.

The advisory comes after Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently ordered bars and restaurants with liquor licenses to close at 10 p.m. to curb the spread of coronavirus as the infection rate continues to rise in recent weeks.
