are people who have been diagnosed with hep c able to cook and serve food for other people in a restaurant of other places of business or serving the homeless is there a chance for contagion if they use gloves
Response from Dr. Taylor
People who have been diagnosed with hep c are able to cook and serve food for other people in a restaurant or other places of business or serving the homeless. This infection is not spread via casual contact. They should wear gloves only if all their colleagues in the workplace have to wear gloves. As is the case for any person, if we have hep C and cut ourselves, we should clean and cover the wound promptly.
