City: 5 Cases of Hepatitis A in Bronx Restaurant

After identifying five cases of hepatitis A at a Japanese restaurant in the Bronx, health officials encouraged all customers who ate recently at the restaurant to get vaccinated. On September 20, officials said that one employee and four customers of the New Hawaii Sea restaurant on Williamsbridge Road tested positive for the virus, and they asked that anyone who ate in the restaurant or who ordered delivery or catering from the business between September 7 and September 19 be vaccinated immediately. The restaurant’s owners have been cooperative and voluntarily closed the restaurant until all its employees could be vaccinated. The Public Health Department began offering vaccinations at Herbert Lehman High School on September 21.
