DOH-ORANGE IDENTIFIES CASE OF HEPATITIS A IN FOOD SERVICE WORKER; ENCOURAGES VACCINATION

Full Story

The Florida Department of Health in Orange County (DOH-Orange) has identified hepatitis A infection in a food service worker at the Morimoto Asia restaurant located at 1600 East Buena Vista Drive, Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830.  Concerned Morimoto Asia customers can leave their information and a call-back number at 877-404-3821.

We know that a healthy diet and exercise are the basics for achieving and maintaining good health, and that routine screenings for conditions and diseases of all sorts—blood pressure, mammograms, diabetes, even bi-yearly teeth cleanings—can prevent sickness and other health problems from taking root. So maybe it’s lack of awareness or just plain stigma that keeps many sexually-active adults from being screened for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Either way, STD screening is safe, confidential (as all health screenings are) and easy, and most STDs can be cured with antibiotics. STD screening is a normal part of taking care of your health.
