Hepatitis A in Canada

The Vancouver B.C. Province reports – Spaghetti Factory food scare

Patrons of Langley’s Old Spaghetti Factory at 20077 91 A Avenue are being warned about a case of Hepatitis A in a food handler.  The risk is low, but health officials are warning some patrons to get a vaccine to be safe.  Anyone who was at the restaurant after 3 p.m. on April, 14, 17, 18, 19 or after 12:45 p.m. on April 20 or 21 is asked to get a Hepatitis A vaccination.

Given that I am sitting in the Seattle airport about to head to Canada, I must comment on how friendly and nice a Canadian food service establishment is to be so accommodating.
