No. No. Hepatitis CVirus is a blood-borne virus that can is transmitted by contact with infected blood, very uncommonly by sexual intercourse. 10% of infected people cannot identify a source. It is not transmitted by secretion such as saliva.
Not likely. Hello Adam,
Hepatitis C is spread through contact with blood. The CDC states that it is not spread through contact with saliva. Certainly, if you are concerned about a possible exposures, getting tested for the infection.
Hope that helps.
