Hi there,
Hepatitis A is transmitted from contaminated food or water or from close contact with person who is already infected. The most likely time for an infected person to spread Hepatitis A virus to others is during the two weeks before the infected person develops symptoms like yellowish discoloration of skin and eyes. The risk of spreading hepatitis A virus decreases over time but can still be present one week or longer after symptoms develop. As you mentioned you are symptom free the chances of you transmitting the infection are very unlikely. There can be lot of weakness and fatigue after the illness. It is best to consult a healthcare professional before you participate.
Best luck and regards!
