Hepatitis A in Food Worker at NY Camillus Country Club

Anyone who consumed food or drinks from Camillus Hills Golf Course/Camillus Country Club during the time period of October 13, 2019 to October 24, 2019, has been potentially exposed to the hepatitis A virus. Since the hepatitis A or immune globulin vaccination is only good when given within two weeks of exposure, that means that anyone who visited that venue after October 18, 2019 is no longer eligible for the vaccine.

The health department is recommending anyone who consumed food or drinks there to get a hepatitis A vaccine as soon as possible. The hepatitis A vaccine is given in two doses, six months apart. Public health officials are also asking that these people call the Onondaga County Health Department at 315-435-5752.

People who are not eligible for the vaccination should monitor their health for symptoms of hepatitis A, which can manifest from 15 to 50 days after exposure. Those symptoms include fever, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, diarrhea, abdominal pain, dark urine, clay-colored stools, joint pain, and jaundice. If you experience these symptoms, see your doctor as soon as possible.

There is currently no risk to eating at the Camillus Hills Golf Course/Camillus Country Club at this time. The owner and staff at the restaurant are compelling with all of the recommendations from the local and state health departments.

The best way to prevent these infections is to get vaccinated. In addition, people should sty home from work or school if they are sick, especially with a diarrheal illness. Anyone who works with the public should consider getting vaccinated against this contagious virus.
