I'd like to see a source for your claim of 20 confirmed cases from the restaurant. Here's what I found from Jun 5th:

Quote:
The worker was at the restaurant, at 6033 SW State Road 200, from May 13 to June 2, according to a news release.
While there are no reports of customers coming down with the virus, the Health Department said getting vaccinated could reduce the chances of infection even further.
It is possible there have been updates. Also note that there have been 87 cases as of June 5th in Marion county prior to this potential exposure. Or about 17 cases per month. So all cases after the exposure will not be due to Zaxby's. Nonetheless as of June 29th there have been 96 cases or only an increase of 9 cases in 24 days which is a lower rate than previously. No evidence there of spread from Zaxby's. Certainly nothing to support a claim of 20 new Zaxby cases.

Actually, there have been zero cases of measels reported in San Diego County in 2019.

Back to Hepatitis, the thread topic, but darn it, let's be honest. Scaring people with falsehoods is simply wrong.

I would really love to here some more of factual information on the disease, how it is spread, and I don't think it is fair to "imply", "hint at" or anything but facts.

I recall when AIDS started, the suicides caused by the panic simply based on fear.

Not to gross everyone out but Hep-A is commonly known as oral-fecal contamination. Hepatitis A

People who poop and don't wash their hands then handle your food. Farm workers who poop in the fields and pick your veggies. Contaminated water supplies..

Wash your food and wash your hands. The rest you pretty much can't control.

Good advice to fight off most any infection. Not gross because it's accurate.

Good link.

Although nasty, at least...

Unlike hepatitis B and C, hepatitis A infection does not cause chronic liver disease and is rarely fatal, but it can cause debilitating symptoms and fulminant hepatitis (acute liver failure), which is often fatal.

Didn't everybody get told by a parent to wash their hands if you touch the bottom of your shoe? Common sense if you think about what you've stepped on during the course of a day.
