Hepatitis A

Here’s what Hillcrest is doing to fight against hepatitis A

Chris Ward talks to SDGLN about fighting hepatitis A in Hillcrest.

San Diego is currently in the throes of a hepatitis A outbreak and the city is doing its best to prevent spreading the disease by installing Porta-potties and handwashing stations downtown.

Homeless people are being blamed for much of the problem, unsanitary conditions and lack of personal hygiene help spread hepatitis A.

SD installs portable restrooms, handwashing stations to thwart hepatitis A

After an outbreak of hepatitis A, San Diego is doing its best to prevent any further infections.

One way they are combating the disease is to set up multiple portable restrooms, four were recently installed downtown near City Hall. They will be maintained at least twice per day and monitored by full-time security.

There is also a hand washing station on site.
