Disease Type: Hep A

Hepatitis A

Hepatitis A is a disease caused by a virus that results in inflammation of the liver. This form of hepatitis is found in the feces (stool) of people who have the disease and is usually spread by the fecal-oral route. This means that if an infected person goes to the bathroom, does not wash their hands properly, and then prepares food or touches surfaces, another person who eats that food or touches that surface can then become infected. Frequent disinfection, proper handwashing, and stringent employee health policies are effective ways of controlling hepatitis A in public places.
