    Protecting the safety of first responders and other rescue personnel in New York, Pennsylvania, and the District of Columbia continues to be a high priority. CDC has received requests for information about management of exposures to blood or other body fluids that pose a hazard for bloodborne pathogen (hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus, or HIV) transmission. Routes of exposure to blood or other body fluids that merit evaluation include percutaneous injuries with contaminated sharps, splashes to mucosal surfaces, and visible contamination of injured skin.
