ADH Wars of Hepatitis A Exposure

Thursday, April 26, 2018

For the second time in recent months, the Arkansas Department of Health is warning of a hepatitis case discovered at a Corning business. On Friday, the ADH issued the warning for anyone who may have eaten at the Flash Market/Subway, in Corning, from March 30, to April 17, due to the fact an employee has tested positive for the virus.

Those who ate at the restaurant during this time, and who have not been vaccinated for hepatitis, should seek medical treatment as soon as possible. Health officials note symptoms may include fever, fatigue, nauseousness, and abdominal pain among others.

Earlier this year the ADH issued a warning for the Taco Bell in Corning, located just across U.S. 67 from the Flash Market/Subway, after an employee tested positive for hepatitis. The state indicated this is the 12th confirmed case of hepatitis in Clay County this year. On Tuesday, the ADH also warned visitors to the Doubledee convenience store, on U.S. Highway 63 at Walnut Ridge. This warning covered the time from April 7 to 18.

Those wanting additional information may call the Clay County Health Unit in Piggott at 870 598-3390.
