[ARCHIVED] Potential Exposure to Hepatitis A Virus at a Yates County Restaurant

Yates County, NY, November 12, 2020 -People who ate at the Trading Post Restaurant on October 18th, October 20th, October 23rd, October 25th or October 28th, were potentially exposed to hepatitis A.  Most people do not get sick when an employee at a restaurant has hepatitis A, but there is still a risk.

As a result of this risk, those who might have been exposed should monitor themselves for signs and symptoms of Hepatitis A over the next 50 days.   Signs and symptoms of Hepatitis A include: fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark colored urine, clay-colored stools, joint pain, or jaundice.  If you develop symptoms, contact your health care provider and be sure to tell them that you may have been exposed to Hepatitis A.  

If anyone ate at the restaurant on days other than those listed above, there was no exposure.  The restaurant remains open and under no restrictions.  The owner and staff at the restaurant have been very cooperative with our investigation and there is currently no ongoing concern or risk to patrons.  

For questions please contact our office at 315-536-5160.
