Hardee’s customers in North Carolina possibly exposed to hepatitis A

CDC identified an outbreak of Hepatitis A associated with a Hardee's employee diagnosed with it. The health director said there have been 12 cases of hepatitis A this year, 10 since April 20. The Hardee's restaurant voluntarily closed Tuesday afternoon and will remain closed indefinitely. The health department knew about the Hardee's connection Monday but waited until Tuesday afternoon to tell the public. Officials said as many as 4,000 people ate at the restaurant over that 10-day period. Mecklenburg County Commissioner Pat Cotham said the Health Department dragged its feet on the issue and should have told the public sooner. According to the CDC, the vaccine must be given within 14 days of exposure for the vaccine to be effective. Hundreds of people lined up outside the Northwest Health Department Wednesday to get their vaccinations. @ https://www.wsoctv.com/news/local/customers-possibly-exposed-to-hepatitis-a-at-west-charlotte-hardees-restaurant/777564680" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">https://www.wsoctv.com/news/local/customers-possibly-exposed-to-hepatitis-a-at-west-charlotte-hardees-restaurant/777564680
