Eat at bartaco? Here's how to get free hepatitis treatment

Thursday, October 26, 2017

From The Journal News

An employee at bartaco in Port Chester has tested positive for hepatitis A, and officials are encouraging anyone who might possibly be infected to get testing and treatment.

People who dined at the restaurant on Oct. 12 need to receive treatment no later than Thursday. 

Free treatment is available encouraged for patrons who visited bartaco between Oct. 12 and Oct. 23 — those patrons need to receive preventive treatment within two weeks of their exposure, according to the health department. 

The Health Department will offer free preventative treatments at the Westchester County Center in White Plains on these dates for people who ate or drank at bartaco: 
  • Thursday (Oct. 26) from 4 to 7:45 p.m.
  • Friday (Oct. 27) from noon to 4:45 p.m.
  • Saturday (Oct. 28) from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
If you ate or drank at bartaco from Aug. 22 to Oct. 11, which is outside of the preventative treatment window, you may also have been exposed to hepatitis A, according to the county's health department.

Contact your health care provider if you experience symptoms, which commonly appear between 15 and 50 days of exposure.

Greenwich Hospital is also providing Hepatitis A vaccinations for a fee. Call our hotline at 203-863-4500 to learn more.
