Hepatitis A Outbreak in San Diego County Declared Emergency (8-30-17)

San Diego County is experiencing an ongoing outbreak of Hepatitis A, a viral illness that causes liver infection. The outbreak has (so far) mainly affected vulnerable populations, including homeless and illicit drug users and in men who have sex with men. This virus is spread through direct contact with an infected person, or through consuming contaminated food or water. The best way to prevent Hepatitis A is to get vaccinated. Hand washing can also reduce your risk for infection. For more information on Hepatitis A, the outbreak, and prevention, see USD's Student Health Center's letter to campus groups regarding Ongoing Hepatitis A outbreak in San Diego County.
