Sleepy Hollow hepatitis A scare linked to bartaco outbreakPosted: Updated:
Health officials are urging patrons of the Sleepy Hollow County Club to get vaccinated after another hepatitis A scare.
People who either ate or drank at the country club between Oct. 27 and Nov. 4 are being warned to get preventative vaccines.
According to officials, the latest scare stems from the outbreak at bartaco in Port Chester, where five people came down with the illness.
They say an employee who works in the Grill Room at the country club became infected by someone infected in the bartaco outbreak.
So far, there have been 10 cases of hepatitis A reported in Westchester County this year.
Officials are urging anyone who may have been exposed to seek preventative treatment right away.
The county health department is offering the free vaccine at a clinic located at 134 Court St. in White Plains Monday and Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesday and Thursday 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., and Friday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
