GREAT RIVER, N.Y. (AP) - The Suffolk County health department is offering free treatment to restaurant patrons who may have been exposed to Hepatitis A.

The health department says a worker at the Farmingdale restaurant Trento has the infectious Hepatitis A virus. People who drank beverages there July 19, 23, 26, 29 or 30 may have been exposed. It causes liver inflammation.

Hepatitis A vaccine or immune globulin is being offered to people who had beverages at Trento on July 29 or July 30. It’s available from noon to 7 p.m. Friday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the health department office at 3500 Sunrise Highway, Building 200, Suite 124 in Great River.

Preventive treatment isn’t recommended for people exposed before July 29. Others should see a doctor if they become sick.
