Employee at Westwood Jerry's Deli Diagnosed with Hepatitis A

The Los Angeles Health Department announced Wednesday night that an employee of Jerry’s Deli in Westwood, located at 10925 Weyburn Ave., has been diagnosed with acute hepatitis A.

Health officials stated in an e-mail "the hepatitis A virus is spread by close physical contact and through fecal contamination of food or drink, so Public Health recommends that patrons who ate sandwiches at the restaurant or who ate catered sandwiches from this location on November 18, 21, 23 or 24 should receive an immune globulin (IG) shot or a hepatitis A vaccination no later than 14 days after their exposure to prevent or reduce illness."

Full details about what those affected should do can be found on L.A. County Health Departments website.
