Downtown Washington White Steamer Employee Diagnosed with Hepatitis A

A worker at the White Steamer in downtown Washington who handled food there last week has been diagnosed with Hepatitis A.

The Daviess County Health Department says while it is rare for restaurant patrons to get contract the disease due to an infected food handler, anyone who consumed food or drink at the White Steamer from May 12th to May 15th is recommended to get a vaccination within 14 days of exposure.

A free clinic will be held at the Washington National Guard Armory from 9 am to 3 pm on Wednesday May 27th.

Face coverings will be required for entry into the clinic and you must stay in your car upon arrival.

Those who cannot attend that clinic should contact their doctor or the Daviess County Health Department at 812-254-8666.
