Woodford County Health Department

A case of Hepatitis A was diagnosed on December 6, 2018 in a former employee who worked until December 1, 2018 at the McDonald's located at 102 United Drive, Versailles. Symptoms began on December 6, 2018. An investigation found that the risk of restuarants patrons becoming infected is very low. Although additional cases are unlikely to occur, McDonald's is working closely with the Woodford County Health Department to prevent any new cases from arising in the community as a result of this case. McDonald's closed early to clean and sanitize their facility, according to health department guidelines.

"The health and well-being of my customers and employees is my highest priority, and my organization is working closely with the local health department to look into this matter to ensure the continued heatlh and safety of all who visit our restaurant." - Local Versailles McDonald's owner / operator
