In brief: Hep A transmission

Hep A transmitted by fecal-oral route, so hand sanitizer use after using bathroom may help to prevent spreading hep a to others, but there's not enough data in literature, however how effective it is.
would also use thorough hand washing, since virus shedding can persist for up to 10 weeks after symptoms onset
