LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An employee of the Hard Rock Cafe restaurant at 4th Street Live! in downtown Louisville has been diagnosed with acute hepatitis A.
The diagnosis is the 314th case in Louisville since the outbreak began.
"While we have had a very small number of food workers diagnosed with hepatitis A in our community, there still has been NO foodborne transmission,” said Dr. Lori Caloia in a news release from the Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness.
Customers who ate at the Hard Rock Cafe at 424 South Fourth Street between April 14-30 may have been exposed to the virus. The health department said, however, that the hepatitis A outbreak "remains centered among the homeless and those who use drugs."
Symptoms of the virus include, fatigue, decreased appetite, stomach pain, nausea, darkened urine, pale stools and jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes). For more information about hepatitis A, click here.
