Errata: Vol. 52, No. RR-1

In the MMWR Recommendations and Reports, "Prevention and Control of Infections with Hepatitis Viruses in Correctional Settings," published on January 24, 2003, an error occurred on page 4 in the second sentence of the paragraph under Occupational Exposures. The sentence should read, "Occupational transmission of HBV infection among hospital-based workers has been linked to percutaneous and mucous membrane exposures, and HCV infection has been primarily associated with percutaneous exposure."

On page 12, in Box 6, the fourth item under Type of Exposure should read, "Household (e.g., cell or dormitory) contact --- to person with chronic HBV infection."

On page 2, errors occurred in Table 1, and on page 20, errors occurred in Table 5. The correct tables follow.
