an answer to this question will be much appreciated, thanks for the for your time in advance.

Response from Dr. McGovern

Your hepatitis A test probably means that you have had this infection in the past - often in childhood the infection is asymptomatic. It does NOT cause chronic liver disease so nothing else needs to be done.

Yes your hepatitis B tests indicate no chronic infection.

Hepatitis C occupational exposure
