Abstract Despite significant advancements in hepatitis C virus (HCV) treatments, the majority of individuals infected with HCV remain undiagnosed. We report on senior citizen center-based HCV testing in Baltimore, which revealed a 9.4\% prevalence of infection. Our data suggest that community-based HCV testing and linkage to care in appropriate settings is feasible and high yield.
