It depends on the type of exposure. Sometimes we don’t know which type of exposure transmitted the virus.

  • Sharing or using sharp items, like syringes or needles, with more than one person is very high risk.
  • Sharing drug use equipment, like needles, syringes, rinse water, cottons and cookers, is high risk.
  • Sharing a personal care item, (like a razor, nail clipper, tweezer or toothbrush) is moderate risk.
  • Having sex with someone who has hepatitis C is a lower risk.
  • Being born to a woman with hepatitis C is a lower risk.
