5,000 possibly exposed to hepatitis A by Mo. restaurant worker

The health department is running a vaccination clinic for anyone who ate at the Red Robin between May 8 - 16

CNN

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — As many as 5,000 people may have passed recently through a Missouri restaurant where an employee with hepatitis A worked while possibly contagious, health officials said Wednesday.

Red Robin said the employee last worked on May 16 and that the restaurant has been deemed safe after an inspection by theSpringfield-Greene County Health Department.

The New Jersey-based restaurant chain didn't say in what area of the restaurant the employee worked but told diners who ate there between May 8 and 16 to call the health department for information about what to do next.
