An Ontario health unit has issued a warning to anyone who travelled through Woodstock recently and stopped for a bite to eat.

Southwestern Public Health says patrons who ate at TA Travel Centre's restaurant between August 6 and August 22 may have been exposed to Hepatitis A. 

The restaurant is located on Mill Street, just off the 401. 

In a statement, the Manager of Infectious Diseases said a worker handled food in the restaurant and helped prepare foods for the convenience store. They were unaware they were carrying the virus. 

Anyone who ordered from the convenience store or ate from the buffet during that time period needs to be tested. 

There are immunization clinics in Woodstock this week.

If you live in Waterloo Region and think you were exposed, you need to contact your doctor or ROW Public Health.
