Default heated o2 low volt after oil change

i just got an oil change. As I was driving away, by engine light came on. I have the code read it it states low voltage from the heated o2 sensor bank 1 sensor 1. Two questions:

1) What could the oil change have possibly done to cause this? Seems like strange timing...

2) how do i fix. Thanks

ExpensiveToys is an unknown quantity at this point

If I remember correctly bank 1 is drivers side, so sensor 1/bank 1 would be O2 sensor on drivers side just to front of catalytic converter.

Only thing I could think of would be that the mechanics disconnected something to get better access, and failed to get it reconnected. But can't think of what they would have needed to disconnect to just change the oil that would effect the O2 sensor on drivers side.

Would recommend giving whoever did the work a call and see if they failed to get something hooked back up.
