An employee at a Niagara Falls Taco Bell has Hepatitis A, which is a very contagious liver infection caused by a virus, according to WIVB. The Department of Health says that the employee handled food and has been sent home. If you ate at the Taco Bell on Niagara Falls Boulevard or used the restroom, between November 21 and December 1, you can get a free Hepatitis A vaccine from the Department of Health. Vaccines will be given today and tomorrow at the Doris W. Jones Family Resource Building, located at 3001 Ninth St. in the Falls from 9 am to 4 pm. You can get pre-registered for the vaccine here. If you ate at the restaurant between November 13 and 20, you may be been exposed, but a vaccine won't help. Some of the symptoms to keep an eye for are fever, vomiting, abdominal pain and jaundice. You can see a full list of symptoms here.

“When our franchisee of this Niagara Falls, NY restaurant learned that one of the team members was diagnosed, they immediately started working in lock step with Taco Bell and health officials to protect the health of employees and customers. The restaurant was thoroughly sanitized and all team members will be offered vaccinations.”
