BREAKING: Those who ate at a Woodstock restaurant may have been exposed to Hepatitis A

Health officials are alerting the public after they say those who ate at a Woodstock restaurant may have been exposed to Hepatitis A.

Southwestern Public Health says a food service worker at the TA Travel Centre restaurant on Mill Street was unaware that they had the liver disease and anyone who ordered off the menu or ordered takeout at the restaurant between August 6th and August 22nd may have been exposed.

The alert doesn’t include those who purchased prepared foods at the convenience store at the centre or those who ate from the buffet.

Anyone living in Oxford County or Elgin County who ate at the restaurant during this time should call Southwestern Public Health’s dedicated Hepatitis A line weekdays between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm. and those who live outside the county should contact their regular doctor or their health unit.

Symptoms of hepatitis A usually appear within 14 to 28 day of exposure but may take up to 50 days to appear and you may be infected and not have symptoms.

If you have symptoms, they can include fever, stomach pain and loss of appetite.
