Whitley County Health Dept. should open up on food workers diagnosed with Hep A

I think the Whitley County Health Department is doing the citizens of our county a disservice by not being more forthcoming regarding food service workers diagnosed with Hepatitis A. Kentucky has the nation’s worst outbreak of the disease. Among Kentucky counties, Whitley ranks...
