Health officials in Upstate New York are warning people about a possible exposure to Hepatitis A at a Finger Lakes restaurant.

Spectrum News reports an alert has been issued to anyone who ate at the Seneca Harbor Station restaurant in Watkins Glen, N.Y., between June 12 and 21. Schuyler County Public Health says patrons may have been exposed to the virus, though the risk of infection is low.

According to the Elmira Star-Gazette, an employee at the restaurant had hepatitis A, a viral disease that affects the liver. Symptoms may include fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark-colored urine, clay-colored stools, joint pain, and jaundice.

Officials are recommending treatment for anyone who has not been vaccinated. Free Hep A vaccination clinics are being offered at the Schuyler County Human Services Complex in Montour Falls on Wednesday from 2-7 p.m., Thursday from 12-6 p.m., and Friday from 12-4 p.m.

The Star-Gazette says the vaccine or immune globulin is only effective within two weeks of exposure to the virus. Some who may have been exposed to the virus as early as June 11 may not benefit from the vaccine; officials say they should monitor themselves for symptoms for 50 days to determine if more treatment is needed.

Additional questions can be directed to Schuyler County Public Health at 1-607-535-8140, or online at

Spectrum reports Seneca Harbor Station, a restored train station originally built in 1876 and renovated with a mahogany bar, is remaining open. Health officials say there is no longer a risk for customers eating there.
