In-N-Out Burger is working closely with its employees and local health officials to control COVID-19 outbreaks at the chain’s two Colorado locations.
As of Wednesday, 168 COVID-19 cases have been reported at the locations in Aurora and Colorado Springs, according to data from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
“We’ve been working closely with our public health agencies to review and confirm that the proactive steps we are taking are appropriate and effective in protecting our communities, and we will continue to do so,” said In-N-Out Vice President Denny Warnick, in a written statement. “This includes limiting the number of Associates and Customers indoors, using staffing ‘cohorts’, and responding quickly to identify and exclude from work anyone who has been in close contact with an individual who has tested positive.”
At the Aurora location, 74 employees have been reported with COVID-19, with 94 employees reported in Colorado Springs. No deaths have been reported.
“We remain committed to doing our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” Warnick said. “The actions that we will continue to take in our Colorado restaurants are guided by our commitment to protect the health and safety of our Customers and Associates.”
