If you have ever been exposed to HCV and you cleared the virus by your own immune system(happens in approx. 15-25% of cases)  you will always test positive for the "antibodies" ,however this will cause you no harm nor is it at all being HCV contagious
Or possibly the positive "antibodies " test was a "false positive" which happens on occasion.

You mention a BCR test ..was this possibly a HCV PCR test you meant?  and if so was the lab  negative or  Undetected? ,,which would also mean there is no active virus to be concerned with.

best...
