In brief: Droplets and food

Hepatitis a is the type of hep that is mostly contracted by eating tainted foods or close contact with i'll person who is coughing, sneezing or some form of aerosol spread.
It is the least serious of the various forms of hepatitis. There is vaccine availble, whch I use mostly in people who travel aa lot, particularly endemic areas.

In brief: Fecal-orally

Hepatitis a is spread fecal-orally.
Therefore, it can be spread from poor sanitation where human fecal matter can contaminate the water supply used by a particular community, restaurant or school.
