17 COVID-19 cases stem from NH restaurant, AG investigating violations

CONCORD, N.H. — At least 17 cases of COVID-19 have arisen from exposure at a restaurant in Hudson, New Hampshire, according to the state department of health and human services.

Fat Katz Food and Drink is the epicenter of a new cluster of COVID-19 from exposures between October 2 and October 19, according to the announcement.

Two people allegedly visited the restaurant knowing they had COVID-19 and should have been in isolation. It’s unclear if those individuals are facing charges for possibly exposing others.

"Any individuals who visited Fat Katz Food and Drink between October 2-9, 2020 may have been exposed to COVID-19 and should seek testing. DHHS has conducted a contact investigation and notified known close contacts directly. However, DHHS is making this public notification because there may be additional individuals at the location during those days who were potentially exposed to the coronavirus. "

The New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office is investigating multiple violations of New Hampshire Food Service guidance by the restaurant.
