Alberta Health Services is warning the public about a confirmed hepatitis A case in someone who was handling food in Airdrie.

While that person was infected, they prepared food at Thang Long Vietnamese Cuisine, located at 304 Main St. S.

If you ate at that spot between May 27 and June 13, you may have been exposed to hepatitis A and should call Health Link at 811 immediately for assessment of exposure and risk.

AHS made it clear there is no ongoing risk of infection associated with Thang Long Vietnamese Cuisine because it has been cleaned, inspected and approved as safe to operate by AHS Environmental Public Health.

Immunization clinics are planned for June 18 and June 19 from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Airdrie Town and Country Centre located at 275 Jensen Drive N.E.

AHS said immunization can only be provided within 14 days after exposure and can prevent illness from occurring.
