Ways Hep C is not spread

  • Shaking hands with an infected person.
  • Hugging an infected person.
  • Kissing an infected person.
  • Sitting next to an infected person.

Approximately 1/3 of patients with hepatitis C never find out how they contracted the virus.

If you suspect that you have hepatitis C or think you have been in contact with an infected person, consult your physician as soon as possible! The sooner you are aware, the sooner you can begin to do something about it.
