Symptoms of hepatitis A include fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, abdominal discomfort, dark urine and yellowing of the skin and eyes.

Doctors suggest getting the hepatitis A vaccine and washing your hands to keep from getting the virus.

Howard says hep A is being spread person to person, primarily among people who use injection and non-injection drugs including marijuana, people who are homeless and their close direct contacts. Illness from hepatitis A is typically acute and self-limited; however, when this disease affects populations with already poor health (e.g., hepatitis B and C infections, chronic liver disease), infection can lead to serious outcomes, including death. 1,209 people were hospitalized and 14 people had died at that point.

DPH identified the increasing number of cases as an outbreak in November 2017.

The disease is "usually spread when a person unknowingly eats or drinks something contaminated by small amounts of stool from an infected person", according to the health department.
