Hello everyone.

I'm thinking of working in Starbucks as a bartender, but I fear if I might be dangerous for customers since I have HCV.

I'm asking this because I tried to work in a supermarket but they would not hair anyone with STD

Hi, Mr. X.  Did you ever start treatment?  If so, how's it going?  I see no reason for you not to work at Starbucks.  And I don't understand why the supermarket wouldn't hire you based on HCV.  It is not considered an STD.  It is blood-borne.  So if you had sexual relations with a woman who was on her period, it's possible to pass hep C to her...otherwise, not.  Frankly, I wouldn't even mention it on a job application unless it's something where you might expose someone through blood contact.
