Another Hepatitis A case is being reported by a person who ate at the same restaurant in Hamilton Township.

Robbinsville Township health officials say the resident ate at Rosa’s Restaurant on 3442 South Broad Street during the time when a food handler reported having Hepatitis A.

The patient works in Hamilton Township. However, health officials say coworkers at the job only have a negligible risk.

The first case of Hepatitis A was confirmed last month in a worker at Rosa’s. In light of that, the township hosted a vaccination clinic at a local firehouse.

Then last week health officials announced two additional cases – a 53-year-old hair dresser and a 60-year-old part-time fitness instructor.

Both women reportedly thought they had the flu before they were diagnosed with Hepatitis A.

All three patients ate at Rosa’s in November while the employee worked there, but health officials say they can’t definitively link the new cases to the first.

Hepatitis A is spread through oral fecal transmission. It’s rarely fatal, but it is highly contagious, and symptoms can appear 2 to 6 weeks after exposure.
