CDC Updates - August 2016
 
Zika
The CDC and the Florida Department of Health have Miami, FL as an area where the Zika virus is being spread by mosquitos. There are new recommendations for pregnant women and their partners.  Learn more.
 
Hepatitis A 
The media routinely alerts its viewers/readers about foodborne illnesses. Hepatitis A outbreaks typically are spread when a person ingests even tiny amounts of contaminated fecal matter – from either an infected food handler or an infected food source. The Hepatitis A virus infects liver cells and causes inflammation resulting in the yellowing of the skin or eyes, fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark urine and light-colored stools. Symptoms develop 15-50 days following exposure to the virus. If you have the symptoms listed above and believe you ingested some contaminated food, please call your Primary Care Physician. If you are pregnant, please contact our office at 804.288.4084. For more information on Hepatitis A please visit the CDC’s website
