After a Hepatitis A outbreak in Massachusetts, New York state officials aren't taking any chances.

The New York State Health Department has issued a Hepatitis A advisory for the entire state. A Friendly's restaurant in Arlington, Massachusetts, is at the center of the outbreak, and health officials are concerned traveling New Yorkers may have stopped there.

It is very close to the heavily traveled Massachusetts Turnpike. Officials are asking anyone who ate at the restaurant between June 4 and 15 to get immediate medical attention.

Hepatitis A is a very contagious disease that attacks the liver, but after treatment most people fully recover.
