  1. Stay clean

Practicing good hygiene and sanitation will help reduce your risk of contracting hepatitis A and E. Always wash your hands, clean fruits and vegetables before eating, stay away from under cooked meat or animal products and make sure to have clean water as well. If you are somewhere and unsure of how pure the water is, bring it to a boil for a minute and then have it. Do not share razors, scissors, and needles. If you are around or living with someone who has hepatitis B, make sure to stay away from their blood and bodily fluids.
