SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina’s health agency is on the job after learning customers who ate at two Spartanburg County restaurants may have been exposed to the hepatitis A virus.

The Department of Health and Environmental Control said it is opening clinics in Greenville and Spartanburg on Sunday to treat to customers visited Hardee’s restaurants in Lyman or Duncan.

Customers and staff who consumed food or drinks at either of the restaurants between the start and middle of this month because they could have been exposed to the highly contagious virus, which causes an inflammation of the liver.

DHEC says after the special Sunday hours, the Greenville County and Spartanburg County health departments will also offer post-exposure treatment on Monday.
