KUTV

(KUTV) — Customers who consumed food or beverages at the New Yorker Restaurant in downtown Salt Lake City may have been exposed to the Hepatitis A virus, according to the Salt Lake County Health Department.

This possible exposure only affects the single restaurant and customers who ate there between July 25 and Aug. 15.

The heath department has estimated that 650 people may have been affected.

It is too late for these customers to receive a preventive vaccination. So, the health department is warning those individuals to watch for symptoms of Hepatitis A.

The symptoms include:

  • Low fever,
  • Loss of appetite,
  • Nausea,
  • Vomiting
  • Yellow skin and eyes.

Because Hepatitis A can show up between two to seven weeks, customers should watch for symptoms until Oct. 3, the health department advised.
