The Bell County Public Health District is issuing an advisory to people who ordered food from the Belton Golden Chick, 610 E. 6th Ave, on May 15-19 after two employees at the restaurant tested positive for COVID-19.

“A public notice is necessary because of the difficulty associated with the contact tracing of one of the employees,” Bell County Public Health Director Amanda Robison-Chadwell said.

The first employee was asymptomatic but tested positive for COVID-19 on May 16. The public’s exposure to that individual was limited. The second employee was symptomatic and at work and test results came back today. The Health District is notifying customers who ordered from the restaurant as early as May 15 due of possible exposure that may not have been contained to the facility.

If you ordered from the business between May 15-19 and have any concerns, please contact the Bell County Public Health District, 254-773-4457, and ask for epidemiology, or email

The restaurant temporarily closed for sanitation purposes.
