Public health officials learned Tuesday that the worker contracted the liver infection. They are recommending that anyone who ate at the restaurant May 28 or 29 see a doctor, but they say the risk of contracting the disease is minimal.
The Durham County Health Department is offering free shots Thursday and Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. About 900 people who ate at the restaurant are expected to receive the shots, which will prevent people from developing the disease.
The employee who contracted the disease no longer works for the restaurant. All other employees have been treated for the illness, and the Health Department does not believe the restaurant will be held responsible. Health department officials say the incident is no reflection on the restaurant's practices at all.
