An employee at the McDonald’s at 506 South Main Street in Owenton, Kentucky has been diagnosed with hepatitis A, according to a press release from the Three Rivers District Health Department. Officials recommend that people in Carroll, Gallatin, Owen, and Pendleton Counties get a hepatitis A or immune globulin vaccine.
That employee worked at that facility from August 16 through August 27, 2018. That is within the two week time frame when a vaccine can help protect against the disease. If you or anyone you know ate at that McDonald’s restaurant during that time frame, they should get a shot.The McDonald’s management is cooperating with this investigation. The restaurant has been disinfected and employees told to get vaccinations and to tell management if they are sick.
