Hepatitis C Breakout in Minot Care Facility

Posted: Updated:
Investigators with the health department have narrowed down the source of a Hepatitis C outbreak in Minot.

All 44 cases involve current or former residents of ManorCare Health Services. They say it either came from podiatry or blood draw services through Trinity Health or nail care services at ManorCare.

"While there are still some questions there I think one of the things we are bringing into place is experts from other areas to look at and work with us as well as the facilities to continue to monitor for transmission to make sure to stop that spread of infection," says State Epidemiologist Tracy Miller.

The state health department says the general population is not at risk.
