Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The employee of another Louisville restaurant has been diagnosed with hepatitis A.

The employee worked at the Texas Roadhouse at 13321 Shelbyville Road in Middletown.

Customers who ate at the restaurant from April 11-25 may have been exposed, according to the Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness.

Just last week, the department announced employees at Mark's Feed Store and Panera were diagnosed. The department is maintaining, however, that the outbreak "remains centered among the homeless and those who use drugs."

Since the outbreak began, 327 cases have been diagnosed in Louisville and nearly 27,000 people have been vaccinated. Symptoms of the virus include, fatigue, decreased appetite, stomach pain, nausea, darkened urine, pale stools and jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes).
