ROCKPORT, Mass. (AP) – Massachusetts Health Officers say a seafood restaurant worker has tested positive for hepatitis A and warns customers that they may have been exposed to the disease.
The state institution for public health and local health officials urges customers who ate cold or uncooked food at Roy Moores Fish Shack in Rockport between April 21 and May 12 to contact their health care providers and receive treatment for possible exposure to hepatitis A.
Officials also urge these customers to thoroughly wash their hands before preparing food to prevent further spread of disease.
A post on the restaurant’s Facebook page on Saturday said the restaurant has temporarily closed for disinfection and that no other worker has the disease.
