Hepatitis A detected in food service worker at Disney Springs restaurant

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (WESH) — A food worker at a Disney Springs restaurant was recently diagnosed with Hepatitis A.

The Florida Department of Health in Orange County (DOH-Orange) has identified hepatitis A infection in a food service worker at the Morimoto Asia restaurant located at 1600 East Buena Vista Drive, Lake Buena Vista, officials said Wednesday.

Concerned Morimoto Asia customers can leave their information and a call-back number at 877-404-3821.

According to health officials, anyone who consumed any food or beverage at this restaurant from November 6 – 16, 2018, may have been exposed to the hepatitis A virus.

Patrons should monitor for symptoms of hepatitis A infection which include sudden onset of abdominal discomfort, dark urine, fever, diarrhea, and yellow skin and eyes (jaundice). Anyone experiencing these symptoms should seek medical attention promptly.

Hepatitis A vaccine or immune globulin (IG) may provide protection against the disease if given within two weeks after exposure. Therefore, those who consumed food or beverage at the restaurant between November 6, 2018, and November 19, 2018, should promptly contact their healthcare provider to receive vaccination. People who have had hepatitis A disease or previously received two doses of hepatitis A vaccine do not need to be immunized for hepatitis A again.
