How Long Hepatitis C Live on Band Aid Outside?

There has been a band aid stuck to the ground in the parking lot of my work for a few weeks...I am a bit afraid of viruses and bacteria so I have avoided this thing relentlessly.This morning, however, I was distracted and I stepped on the band aid...

How long would Hep C last in dried blood when outside? I know room temperature says 4 days? Is this accurate?

The temperature where I live has been between 50-80 degrees Fahrenheit for the past couple months...

Do I need to worry about tracking dried blood from the bottom of my shoes around my house and in my car? :/

I don' t mean no harm but you have chosen a really appropriate user name.
You have absolutely nothing to worry about.

BTW, when I stepped on the band aid, it was enough force to crumple it up and unstick it from the ground...
