NORTHPORT, Ala. (AP) - The state health officer says customers who visited the McDonald's on McFarland Boulevard in Northport any time on March 14 or during the breakfast hours on March 16 may have been exposed to hepatitis A virus through an infected employee and they should contact their health care provider as soon as possible.
Health Officer Don Williamson said hepatitis A vaccine and immune globulin can prevent a hepatitis A virus infection, but it must be given within 14 days. He said anyone exposed on March 14 or 16 should receive treatment by Friday.
Health department officials said they don't know of any other restaurant employees or any customers who have become ill.
Signs of hepatitis A virus infection include mild fever, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting.
