Hepatitis A case reported in a Custer food worker


CUSTER, S.D. - The state Department of Health says a hepatitis A case has been reported in a food worker at a pizza restaurant in Custer.

The department says people who ate at Pizza Works from June 19 to July 5 should contact their health care provider to see if they need a vaccination or a shot of immune globulin.

Hepatitis A can be spread by direct contact or through consuming food or a beverage handled by a person who has it. Symptoms of the virus-caused liver disease potentially include fatigue, abdominal discomfort, dark urine and jaundice.
