They were sent home halfway through their shifts and are now self-isolating after they "couldn't stop coughing" at the fast food restaurant in Hull.

The McDonald's restaurant was said to have remained open after an enhanced clean.

One woman, who did not wish to be named, raised concerns over the branch's response because their siblings work there.

She told The Mirror: "Many employees have vulnerable relatives at home who they are putting at risk through inconsiderate people."

She added: "I'm really disappointed with McDonald's. This staff member was also serving customers.

"[They] had travelled in on public transport, worked half a shift and because [they] couldn't stop coughing went home again on public transport. Work for everyone else carried on as normal."

All of the branch's employees were informed of the positive coronavirus case.

A McDonald's spokesperson confirmed the positive coronavirus case.

A spokesperson said the branch was given "an enhanced clean as a precautionary measure".

She said: "One employee at our Holderness Road restaurant has tested positive for Covid-19 and is self-isolating."
