In Reply to: catching hepatitis posted by would like to know on October 12, 2000 at 19:39:02:

: If someone who has hepatitis puts some chopsticks they're using to eat with in a dish of food you're also eating from, can you get hepatitis by eating from that dish? If so, how likely is it and how soon after this happens should you get a test?

Hepatitis A- yes (liklihood increases with repeat visits from mouth to plate)
HepatitisB-yes (less likely than hepA, but possible)
Hepatitis C-NO (no chance)

I hope this helps,
