A worker in a North Bay bar has been confirmed to have Hepatitis A and health unit officials are asking anyone that may have been served there in the past month or so to see their doctor if they have symptoms.

On New Year’s Eve Day, lab results confirmed an employee from the Fraser Tavern, a bar in North Bay — located at 680 Fraser St. — had Hepatitis A.

Public health officials would not say where in the bar the employee worked, only that he or she worked at the tavern while infectious on Nov. 26, 27 and Dec. 3, 4, 10 and 11.

North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit officials are asking those who had drinks or food or garnishes served to them on those dates to be aware.

“As a precautionary measure, we suggest bar patrons see their health care provider if they experience any of the symptoms (of Hepatitis A),” said Sheila Marchant-Short, manager of the communicable disease control for the health unit, in a press release.
