At Chipotle, you can’t fool anyone with a fake sick day.

Niccol told "Today" the policy is to make sure all employees are healthy enough to prepare food and not to check on their drinking habits.

If the nurse determined the employee is actually sick, Chipotle will pay for the day off.

The commitment to a clean eating environment comes years after a norovirus outbreak got more than 140 people sick after they ate at a Boston Chipotle. Another outbreak forced a Virginia Chipotle to close temporarily in 2017.
