Makes you wonder about the fast food / restaruants in general, and if the Utah
Health Department does unannounced checks. Seems this disease could have been
passed on purpose by an employee getting even or very poor hygiene. Many times
I see the Fast Food Folks handling money, and then touching food directly. They
wear the gloves, but what good does that do when you are contacting dirty items
- NONE. They don't even try to hand you a cup without touching the rim!
This is suposed to be a Health Code violation, but I am not sure there is any
enforcement. I try to go to places I trust and have little turnover or employee
shady employees. Not so easy. It is very easy to pass Hep A around this time
of year. I will be avoiding Spanish Fork for a long time. Back a few years ago
it was easy to get Hep C from tainted blood, not so much any more. This is far
worse than Hep A.
Owl is right. Getting the combo vaccination against A and B is a must. The herd
immunity has been decreasing in various parts of the country/Utah.
Wash your hands people after going #2!!! It's that easy folks.Gross.
Immunization against Hep A and B is the safest method of prevention.
It was once standard advice to Hepatitis A patients that they should not give
blood, even after recovery. Is that still advised? In general, restaurants and
fast food places are not the safest for getting a meal.
This is completely preventable! If people thoroughly wash their hands with hot
soapy water after wiping their behinds!!!
