Fort Collins restaurant Tortilla Marissa's reopens after Hepatitis A outbreak

FORT COLLINS, Colo. - The Fort Collins restaurant at the center of a Hepatits A outbreak in June will reopen on Saturday.

The owners of Tortilla Marissa's North of the Border Cafe have spent the past six weeks working on the restaurant sanitizing, painting, changing the flooring and doing other work.


Back in June, a food worker employed at restaurant at 2635 S. College Ave. tested positive for Hepatitis A, a disease that might be passed to others through food directly handled by the employee before any symptoms appeared, according to the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment.

Hundreds of diners got shots, just in case.

The restaurant agreed to voluntarily close until approved by the Health Department to reopen.

The Larimer County Department of Health completed two pre-opening inspections Tuesday and Wednesday at Tortilla Marissa's before giving the OK for them to open, according to the Fort Collins Coloradoan.
