Previous Notifications of Possible Exposures
DHEC investigates all reports of hepatitis A in South Carolina. The risk of hepatitis A being spread by a food handler to people who eat at a restaurant is low. Based on recognized best practices from the CDC and other states, when an investigation shows the likelihood of patrons being exposed is small and hepatitis A vaccine is not needed, no public notice will be given. Notices will be posted on this website if it is recommended patrons should consider hepatitis A vaccine.
