A food worker at the Ancestor Square Pizza Factory in St. George, Utah, has tested positive for hepatitis A infection. The Southwest Utah Public Health Department hopes to identify customers who ate at the restaurant during the following times:

  • July 19 (Fri.):   6-9:30 p.m.
  • July 20 (Sat.):  6-9:30 p.m.
  • July 23 (Tue.): 5-9:00 p.m.
  • July 26 (Fri.):   6-9:30 p.m.
  • July 27 (Sat.):  5-9:30 p.m.

Those who ate during these times may have been exposed to hepatitis A and are advised to contact the health department to possibly receive a hepatitis A vaccination. Those who ate at the restaurant outside of these times and those who have already been vaccinated for hepatitis A do not need to seek treatment. The Ancestor Square Pizza Factory remains open for business and is cooperating with investigators. The health department noted that the restaurant has “a record of very good restaurant inspection scores.”
