Apple Mountain Exxon May Have Exposed Customers to Hepatitis A

23 November 2018 Luray/Page County Shenandoah County Front Royal/Warren County Winchester Frederick County Clarke County News


The Lord Fairfax Health District is warning that citizens may have been exposed to hepatitis A in Linden.

The alert came after the Lord Fairfax Health District became aware that a food handler at the Apple Mountain Exxon on John Marshall Highway was diagnosed with hepatitis A. Anyone who ate made-to-order food prepared in the deli such as deli sandwiches from this location from November 11th through November 20th, 2018, may have been exposed. Those who ate fresh food at that location and were exposed may still benefit from a vaccine or immune globulin that can prevent hepatitis A if they receive it within two weeks. The health district is advising that anyone who believes they may have been exposed contact their health care provider. Symptoms of hepatitis A include jaundice fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark urine and light-colored stools.
