An American Airlines flight attendant possibly exposed passengers to Hepatitis A on a recent flight from San Francisco to Charlotte.

CDC officials were notified Oct. 1 of a confirmed case of acute hepatitis A from the flight.

The flight attendant “had diarrhea on several flights within the infectious period,” prompting investigators to contact all passengers and crew.”

Mecklenburg County health officials spoke by phone with all 18 passengers from the Charlotte area who were aboard the Sept. 21 flight, and all have since been vaccinated against the virus, The Charlotte Observer reported on Saturday.
