Linton Long John Silver’s Closes Voluntarily after Employee Tests Positive for Hepatitis A

(LINTON) – Linton’s Long John Silvers closed voluntarily Thursday for cleaning after an employee tested positive for Hepatitis A, according to Greene County health officials.

The Greene County Health Department determined the “risk of infection is very low for patrons who visited the restaurant earlier this month,” according to a statement released Thursday.

Health officials say they have been working with the establishment at 1600 A Street NE, since Tuesday to confirm an infected employee, and to ensure proper cleaning measures are taken.

The investigation concluded Wednesday afternoon with the Indiana State Department of Health determining this was a low-risk situation.
