According to KAMC 28, patrons who ate at Cheddar’s Cafe between August 31st and September 8th may have been exposed to the disease Hepatitis A. Dumbauld said that the disease was spread by an employee who was unaware they had the disease, and was not the fault of the restaurant. She said that she has only heard of one case of the disease and does not expect it to be an epidemic, but that the city is ordering 4,000 doses of the adult vaccine in case of an outbreak.

Dumbauld said the disease is not airborne and cannot be passed by casual contact, but advises that if people think they may have the disease, they need to contact their health care provider as soon as possible. For more information on the vaccines, you can call the Lubbock Health Department at 775-2945.
