Good News: NYC Restaurant Alta Hasn't Given Anyone Hepatitis A

New York City restaurant Alta and recent patrons can all breathe a bit easier now. After concern that the restaurant may have exposed hundreds of people to Hepatitis A, the New York Post says that no new cases of the virus have been reported.

The scare began after a pastry chef thought she got a liver infection after eating a contaminated meal in Mexico. About 450 people had desert at the restaurant between Mar. 23 and Apr. 2, and the Department of Health advised everyone who ate at the restaurant during that period to get vaccinated.

Since the DOH is reporting that there haven't been any new cases, everyone can relax a little.
