The possible exposure affects only this 7-Eleven location, officials said.

Health officials from Salt Lake County say around 2,000 people who visited the West Jordan store between December 26 and January 3 could have picked up the liver infection - and only have until today to have a preventative shot.

Anyone who used the store's restrooms is asked to contact the health department immediately for information on receiving a vaccine.

Those who used the store's restroom or consumed fresh fruit, fountain drinks or any hot food case items and are not vaccinated for hepatitis A are urged to call the health department at 385-468-4636.

Prepackaged items bought at the store are safe.

The company says as many as 2,000 people could be impacted.

Hepatitis A is a liver virus typically passed between people through fecal or oral contact, but it can also be spread through contaminated food items, explained the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"This is an important reminder to food service establishments that they should consider vaccinating their food-handling employees against hepatitis A", said Salt Lake County Health Department Executive Director Gary Edwards.

The stricken store was said to be "cooperating fully" with an investigation into the health breach, and has since been sanatized to meet department standards. Symptoms include fatigue, low appetite, stomach pain, nausea and jaundice.

Outbreaks of hepatitis A began cropping up sporadically throughout the United States in March of 2017, spurring the California government to declare a public health emergency.

"It's also important the food handlers be conscientious with hygiene, hand washing and not working when ill", he continued, "and that managers be vigilant in enforcing those important requirements that protect public health". The CDC has been working to make sure the most at-risk populations get the vaccine while waiting for more doses to be manufactured.
