Seattle health officials say there is no indication that any current employee has the infection. They are trying to find out if a former employee was infected.
The restaurant closed on April 17 for a deep cleaning. The owners were told they could not reopen until they reviewed the employee illness policy with all employees and made sure all of them had received food safety training.
Hepatitis A is a highly contagious virus that causes infection of the liver. It is transmitted when an infected food handler uses the bathroom and does not wash hands properly. Symptoms of an infection include yellowing of the skin or eyes, decreased appetite, nausea, abdominal cramps, fever, fatigue, dark urine and clay-colored stools. These symptoms can last weeks or months without treatment.
