The Toasted Monkey is a very famous restaurant in St. Pete Beach. The Florida department of Health identified a positive case of Hepatitis A in a worker that works at the Toasted Monkey.
Hepatitis A is a highly contiguous infection of the liver caused by the Hepatitis virus.
According to ABCactionnews, “Officials say the person worked at the restaurant, located at 6110 Gulf Boulevard, between October 17 and October 28, 2018. They say anyone who frequented this restaurant during that time, who has not been vaccinated for Hepatitis A, should get the vaccine as soon as possible. If you have received the vaccine, you don’t need to take any action.”
The Hepatitis was a scare because of the dates the worker was working. The dates seemed to fall around a lot of schools fall breaks and St. Pete Beach is a popular attraction.
If you went to St. Pete Beach for fall break and ate at The Toasted Monkey, you are really encouraged to go check in with your doctor.
