Health Authority Warns of Possible Exposure to Hepatitis A at Center City Restaurant



PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) – The Philadelphia Department of Public Health issued a warning Friday after confirming that a person working at an Italian restaurant in Center City had acute hepatitis A.

Officials Recommend Anyone Visiting Ristorante La Buca receives a hepatitis A vaccine between October 28 and November 15 as soon as possible after a restaurant worker becomes infected with the virus.

The best way to prevent hepatitis A is through vaccination, according to health officials.

People who need the hepatitis A vaccine should contact their healthcare provider's office or visit a pharmacy.

Hepatitis A is a liver infection. It can spread when a person who has the virus does not wash their hands very carefully after using the bathroom and then prepares food. People infected with hepatitis A typically develop symptoms two to six weeks after they have had contact with the virus, officials said.

Officials say the symptoms can range from mild cases of diarrhea and vomiting to more severe symptoms of jaundice. Other symptoms include fever, low energy, stomach pain and dark urine.
