PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) -

Residents are reacting after a Paragould Little Caesars employee tested positive for Hepatitis A.

Little Caesars is open once again after temporarily closing on Wednesday, taking the extra step to sanitize their store.

Several community members said they felt reassured about eating at the restaurant in the future.

On Thursday, the first Hep A clinic was held at the Paragould Community Center.

One man said he was getting the vaccine because he was at the restaurant about two weeks ago.

He said he appreciates the restaurant's response to the issue.

"I think Little Caesar is taking it more serious by them being a big chain across the country," said Greene County resident James Wren.

Another vaccination clinic will be held at the community center on Friday, Aug. 10 from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.

More vaccination clinics will also be held on August 16th and 17th from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Eastside Baptist Church.
