State Investigating Possible COVID-19 Exposure at Hudson Restaurant

N.H. health officials say at least 17 confirmed coronavirus cases are associated with the outbreak in Hudson.

The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services is warning residents of a COVID-19 cluster connected to a restaurant in Hudson.

At least 17 COVID-19 cases have been linked to Fat Katz Food and Drink. 

Officials say customers who may have been exposed to the virus between Friday, Oct. 2, and Friday, Oct. 9, should seek testing. They say two of the individuals linked to the spread were aware of their positive status and still went to the restaurant. 

Last week, the eatery also announced the incident on social media. The resturant says they will remain closed until the staff goes through testing. 

"We have been informed that a part-time employee had tested positive for Covid," wrote the bar in a Facebook post. "We have contacted the health authorities and are awaiting a response."

The state’s Attorney General’s Office is currently investigating the incident for potential violations of state food service guidelines.
