Contamination std risk from eating bagel

Recently went to the bagel store and I had noticed that the associate had his finger wrapped and also there was blood stained on the dressing on his hand. It looked very fresh and also he was wearing gloves,Thin clear gloves that they were to prepare for, he had prepared the bagels from my wife and myself and I’m curious if I have a risk of getting anything.

You have asked this in the hepatitis c forum. Hepatitis C is a blood borne virus. Hepatitis C infected blood must enter the bloodstream of an unaffected person.

As far as hep c you are not at risk from eating a bagel
