Students of two high schools in Florida have been declared to be potentially exposed to Hepatitis A virus. This was after a worker at the venue, where their proms were held, tested positive to the virus. The students who attend Central High School, Brooksville and F. W. Springstead High School were notified after the Hernando County health department affirmed an employee of the Silverthorn Country Club is positive to the virus. The employee is suspected to have unknowingly infected patrons between 12th and 30th of April, 2019. Central High students held their prom on 13th April while Springstead High School students held theirs on 27th April.

People who have consumed drinks or food from the restaurant between 12th and 16th of April have been asked to pay attention to symptoms which include abdominal discomfort, darkened urine, pale white stools, yellow skins or eyes, diarrhea, and fever. The health department will administer free hepatitis A vaccines on May 1-3 and May 6-8.

Alyssa Fiorvante, one of the students who attended prom at the venue finds it unbelievable and unnerving that they all have to go out of their way because they ate and drank at the Country Club’s restaurant.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Hepatitis A is a viral disease of the liver which can be prevented by vaccines. It is usually spread via consumption of contaminated drinks and food and the fecal-oral route. It does not result in a chronic medical condition as the symptoms usually become resolved in two months or less.
