The Hamburger Mary’s restaurant in Ybor City is closing permanently.

The restaurant announced Tuesday on its Facebook page saying “We along with our management team and dedicated staff have done our best to keep Mary’s doors open for nine years, but the latest challenge was hard to overcome.  Its our pleasure to serve the entire community weather it was a safe place to come and enjoy a meal amongst friends or a place to hold your community fundraisers.”  Hamburger Mary’s has been located in Centro Ybor on 7th avenue for nearly a decade, but the restaurant was forced to close after one of its employees tested positive for Hepatitis A. Health officials say anyone who dined at the restaurant from October 4th to October 20th should get a Hepatitis A vaccination.  Meanwhile, the restaurant was also cited with dozens of  health violations, 10 of which were considered “high priority.”

Health officials say Hepatitis A can spread person to person through feces contaminated with the virus, which is why good hygiene is an essential protection against the disease. Symptoms include fever, dark urine, yellow- tinged skin or eyes, fatigue and gastric issues. It can cause damage to the liver, especially among those who already have liver disease . Health officials say the virus is on the rise in Florida and beyond.
