Recently one of my employees has been diagnosed with Hepatitis A.
Could someone who is an expert on this advise me if I should have all of my employees tested for this. We do not work with food but we do have contact with the public on a daily basis.

he will likely clear the infection in fairly short order - hep A is mainly spread through food which has been unsanitarily grown or handled and has been contaminated by fecal matter - rest rooms need to be sanitized regularly as it is possible to spread in this manner - i dont think all employees would need tested -

im doing well - thanks tiff - ive been trout fishing quite a bit lately - think im benefiting from the exercise - im able to do more but sometimes i cramp up - but it goes away after a bit - lol --- overall my labs have been good - i really believe in the next 3 years there will be much more hope for people in the cirrhotic poor alpha interferon sustained response category - ive been having breakouts of prurigo nodularis lately - worry warts - lol - what me worry - i read that they are more common in chronic hcv cases - so aggravating - they say dont pick at them - ok - im a bit ocd in that category - they just want to inject with steroids - its not really helping - i told them to laser them or freeze them - i might try elsewhere if they dont get better --- well if thats my biggest complaint im doin well - however the neuropathy and arthritic conditions are also bummers - lol - hope all is well with you
