Arizona: Hepatitis Fear Shuts Two Eateries

January 11, 2007

Maricopa County health officials on Friday learned that a person who worked at the San Diego Bay and El Yaqui restaurants in Guadalupe had been admitted to a hospital with hepatitis A. Both the restaurants have now been temporarily closed, and hundreds of patrons have received injections to prevent or lessen the severity of the disease. The employee worked at the restaurants Dec. 6-30. Anyone who became infected could develop symptoms up to 50 days later. "We only have a two-week window between the date of exposure and when we can give the immunoglobulin," said Jeanene Fowler, public health spokesperson. On Sunday and Tuesday, up to 600 people received the injection at Guadalupe clinics.
