Maricopa County Department of Public Health (MCDPH) has identified a hepatitis A exposure at the Genghis Grill restaurant in Tempe Marketplace, at 2000 E. Rio Salado Pkwy., Tempe, AZ 85281. Although the risk of transmission to restaurant patrons is thought to be low, some restaurant patrons who ate at Genghis Grill at Tempe Marketplace may have been exposed to Hepatitis A.
The Arizona Department of Health Services, Maricopa County Department of Public Health and Pinal County Public Health Services District have confirmed an additional case of measles stemming from the outbreak at the private detention center in Eloy, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to eleven. The potential exposure area is being expanded because some of the identified cases may have exposed other people within Pinal and Maricopa Counties.
As part of its effort to learn more about public health readiness and response to extreme heat and other disasters, the Maricopa County Department of Public Health will administer a door-to-door survey and is looking for volunteers.
