Customers at The New Yorker Restaurant in Salt Lake City Exposed to Hepatitis A

According to news reports, hundreds of customers at The New Yorker Restaurant at 60 West Market Street in Salt Lake City, Utah may have been exposed to hepatitis A. An ill worker "potentially handled certain food or beverage items," from July 25 through August 15, 2018 at the restaurant. About 650 people may be at risk for this illness.

Employees at Two Louisville, Kentucky Restaurants Diagnosed with Hepatitis A

Employees at two restaurants in Louisville, Kentucky have been diagnosed with hepatitis A, a very contagious virus that affects the liver.
