Hep C incubation period

Hello, if someone contracts Hep C, how long does it take until they become contagious and can pass it on? TY

  1. Hi Bigchevy24, thanks for your question. Hepatitis C is generally contagious from a week before the onset of symptoms. Once you have a chronic infection, you are indefinitely contagious until treated for the virus. Let us know what other questions you have. Best, Matt (Team Member)
