We love Porky's Pizza. They are of care and integrety. Looking forward to the reopening. Hoping for a full recovery for the employee and family.

Would be really interesting to understand the employees situation as its been over ten days since having symptoms. I completely understand and respect the individual's privacy - but from a pandemic calibration would be interested in knowing whether this individual is "over it" and ok or if is really struggling through the effects.

I think Porky's did right by their employees and customers in the actions they took, the community should support them upon re-opening with equal consideration.

We had a pizza and salad delivery from Porky's on May 18th which was the last shift of the affected employee. Should we be worried. I wonder if the employee was involved in the preparation of our pizza and salad?

You shouldn't be worried. It's not a foodborne illness. It's respiratory, like the flu.

Yeah, I think that Glen is correct. From what I've read, getting coronavirus from eating or drinking is highly unlikely.

It's been widely reported that food is not very likely to spread the virus. I wouldn't worry.
