“Hooters” waitress Jheri Stratton has been quarantined in her Baltimore home for the past seven months after allegedly catching tuberculosis from her manager, The Baltimore Sun reports.
During this period, she has been required to wear a mask while walking her dog, cancel vacations, and swallow a hand full of pills twice a week under the in-person supervision of a city Health Department official. Stratton was diagnosed with an active form of tuberculosis in November after she and other co-workers allegedly caught it from a manager at the Harborplace Hooters in downtown Baltimore. The former waitress told The Sun that her life has been very difficult to live.

“It feels like a weight lifted off my shoulders because it’s finally someone acknowledging that this isn’t my fault,” Stratton said. “Hooters is acknowledging the fact that this wasn’t something that I just picked up on the MTA.”
