Another Hepatitis A Case Reported in Pike County

Yet another case of hepatitis A was diagnosed in Pike County earlier this month.

The person who tested positive for the virus was an employee at a KFC restaurant in South Williamson.

According to an investigation by the Pike County Health Department, the risk of restaurant patrons becoming infected is very low.

KFC is now working with the Health Department to prevent any new cases.

Hepatitis A can take up to seven weeks to cause someone to fall ill from the virus. Hand washing, along with vaccination, will prevent the spread of the disease.
