Reports indicate that an employee of the venue located on Joy Road in Westland tested positive for the infection according to the Wayne County Department Of Health, Veterans and Community Wellness. Vaccinations will be offered to the other employees and anyone who consumed a beverage between the dates of November 20th and December 4th are warned to watch out for symptoms. Symptoms of Hepatitis A include:
