Hepatitis A Outbreak Forms and Guidance

Kentucky is experiencing the largest hepatitis A outbreak in recent history. The outbreak continues to spread across the state in the homeless and drug using communities. They are also seeing multiple substance abuse treatment facilities and correctional facilities affected by cases. KDPH has created packets of information to ensure those facilities serving the at-risk populations are equipped with the necessary tools to respond to hepatitis A cases.  Outreach materials are available at http://chfs.ky.gov/dph/hepatitis.htm.
