HCV and Food Service
Jun 7, 2001

Is it OK for a Hep C infected person to cook and serve food and beverages to the public.

Response from Dr. Bartlett

Hepatitis C virus can be spread through contact with infected blood or through sexual contact. Food service workers should always take precautions to avoid the contamination of food they are preparing with their blood. Provided that these precautions are being taken, a hepatitis C-infected food service worker should be fine to prepare food.
