Important Hepatitis A Case Update – December 4, 2014

 

Hamilton Township Mayor Kelly Yaede and the Hamilton Township Division of Health are providing the following update in the ongoing Hepatitis A case.

 

Late today (Thursday, December 04, 2014), the State Department of Health ruled out a possible second case of Hepatitis A of a frequent patron of Rosa’s Restaurant and Catering, located at 3442 South Broad St, Hamilton Township, NJ.

 

A series of tests conducted at Robert Wood Johnson Hospital – Hamilton determined that the second individual highlighted in earlier media reports was NOT infected by Hepatitis A.

 

After a first blood test (that was eventually deemed to be a “false positive” result), two separate tests conducted by Robert Wood Johnson Hospital – Hamilton’s Emergency Room staff, in consultation with their Infectious Disease Team, came back as negative (indicating that the patient did NOT have Hepatitis A).  Therefore, at this time, the only confirmed individual in this case to have been determined to have Hepatitis A is the original employee of Rosa’s Restaurant and Catering.   

 

Mayor Kelly Yaede and the Hamilton Township Division of Health will continue to provide residents with any further developments in this case.
