PEOPLE – A restaurant worker at Walt Disney World in Orlando was diagnosed with hepatitis A, according to Florida’s Department of Health. The theme park says that no other employees or guests have been infected.
The employee was part of the cast at the Hoop-De-Doo Musical Revue, one of the dinner theater options in the Magic Kingdom Resort.
The Department of Health learned of the case on Jan. 24, and confirmed the lab results, WFTV reported. The agency worked with Disney over the last week to provide vaccines to the other staff members.
The restaurant is still open, but it was fully cleaned and sanitized as a precaution.
Hepatitis A is a highly contagious liver infection that typically spreads between food, drinks and other objects. People who are infected develop flu-like symptoms including fever, nausea, abdominal pain and darkened urine. Hepatitis A can lead to deaths in people over age 50. Read more.
