CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire health officials say a second worker at a Contoocook restaurant has developed hepatitis A and that between 100 and 200 people might have been exposed to the liver disease.
Public Health Director Dr. Jose Montero said Friday it's linked to a previous case of a bartender developing hepatitis A at the Covered Bridge Restaurant last month.
Montero said the second worker was at the restaurant on Aug. 13 and Aug. 20.
Health Department recommends that restaurant on Aug. 20 receive a
vaccine to protect themselves. Clinics are being set up from 5 p.m. to 8
p.m. Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon at Bow High School.
Hepatitis A can be spread when an infected person handles food without appropriate hand hygiene.
