Outbreak linked to NH restaurant, patrons may have been exposed
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - At least 17 people have tested positive for COVID-19 in an outbreak linked to a restaurant in Hudson, and more patrons may have been exposed, the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services said Friday.
The cases include a person who went to the Fat Katz Food and Drink restaurant while aware of their COVID-19 diagnosis when they were supposed to be in isolation, and a second person who went there when they were knowingly supposed to be on quarantine. Both potentially exposed others, the department said in a news release.
Anyone who visited the restaurant from Oct. 2-9 may have been exposed to COVID-19 and should seek testing, the department said. The department said conducted a contact investigation and notified close contacts directly.
The attorney general’s office also is investigating multiple violations of New Hampshire Food Service guidance at the establishment, the department said.
