  •   Monterey County Declares Hepatitis A Outbreak Among Homeless Population

    Since early 2017, the San Diego and Santa Cruz County Health Departments have been investigating local hepatitis A outbreaks among individuals who are homeless or use illicit drugs. Unfortunately, disease levels in Monterey County have now reached outbreak levels. Since October 2017, hepatitis A has been diagnosed in 9 individuals with a history of homeless in Monterey County. These individuals did not travel outside of Monterey County so are assumed to have become ill due to transmission within the homeless and illegal drug use communities in Monterey County.

Safe Body Art Act

California’s Safe Body Art Act, revised January 1, 2014, provides minimum standards for persons and businesses engaged in performance of tattooing, body piercing, branding and the application of permanent cosmetics in California. These requirements are intended to protect both the practitioner and the client from transmission of infectious diseases through the application of proper body art procedures and the control of cross-contamination of instruments and supplies.

The local enforcement agency (LEA) enforces California’s Safe Body Art Act with a registration and inspection program for both body art operators and body art facilities. This program ensures that state minimum standards are met prior to operators and facilities providing services to the public within Monterey County. A required annual inspection also ensures continued compliance.
