LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) – The Lexington-Fayette County Health Department says it has received more reports of illnesses stemming from the Fayette Mall food court.
Fayette Mall announced it is closing the food court as a result of the reported illnesses out of an abundance of caution. The health department recommended it closed.
The health department says more than 150 reports of illnesses are known at this time, but it is unsure what the actual cause of the illness is. Officials believe it is related to a stomach bug because of the symptoms.
“These are folks who got sick relatively quickly after eating there,” health department commissioner Dr. Kraig Humbaugh said.
