Since March 2018, the West Virginia Bureau for Public Health has
reported an increase in the number of confirmed cases of acute
hepatitis A virus. This increase in cases has primarily been among
injection and non-injection drug users, homeless or mobile
individuals, and those who have been recently incarcerated. Viral
sequencing has linked cases from Kentucky and California.
