30 hepatitis cases linked to Illinois McDonald’s

“Health officials say at least 30 cases of hepatitis A are now linked to an infection outbreak caused by workers at a McDonald’s in northwestern Illinois, which has been blamed on a breakdown in communication among the restaurant, the employees and health safety workers.

The Illinois Department of Public Health and the Rock Island County Health Department reported the 30th confirmed case of hepatitis A infection among people who visited the McDonald’s, as the Rock Island County Sheriff’s Department completed its investigation into how employees were allowed to work after testing positive for hepatitis A, a contagious liver infection.”
