Whitey's Bar and Billiards: Advisory from Iowa's Department of Public Health!

Billiards GraphicBilliards buddies, pool players, and cue sport fans, I just read this piece of billiards news from the Chicago Tribune.

Iowa’s Department of Public Health is urging patrons of Whitey’s Bar and Billiards to get vaccinated for hepatitis after a food service worker at the billiards establishment was diagnosed with hepatitis A.

According to the agency, persons who consumed any drinks containing ice or a lemon slice, those who ate at the salad bar or in restaurant at Whitey’s Bar and Billiards from July 2-13, 2008, may have been exposed to hepatitis. It is urging such persons to receive a hepatitis A vaccine or immune globulin immediately.

Symptoms of hepatitis A may include fever, diarrhea, tiredness, loss of appetite, dark urine, and jaundice. Moreover, some who contract hepatitis A can become ill enough to be hospitalized or bedridden! And I kid you not!

The AnitoKid says: Go get yourself vaccinated, friends! Prayers for a speedy recovery go out to the food service worker, and to our billiards friends and buddies who may be ill at this point in time.

"Pool halls. The AnitoKid's home away from home!"
