CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The manager of a New Hampshire restaurant says he’s struggling to keep the business going after two part-time employees tested positive for hepatitis A.
Jeremy Frost of the Covered Bridge Restaurant in Contoocook says business has dropped nearly 50 percent since it became known that the workers, who are roommates, tested positive for the liver disease.
Frost tells WMUR-TV (http://bit.ly/1atCwv3 ) that customers have been hesitant to return, despite assurances that that restaurant is safe and the disease wasn’t contracted at the business.
He says the two men just happened to be working there, and their diagnosis has nothing to do with the restaurant itself. He says the restaurant has passed all state health inspections and that he’s relying on word of mouth to bring customers back.
