The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) state, “No restrictions on professional activity (unless epidemiologically linked to transmission of infection). HCV-positive health-care personnel should follow aseptic technique and standard precautions.” They do recommend talking to your physician to assess risks depending on the state of the disease.
