Hi,

Thanks for contacting AIDS Vancouver. I will try and answer your question as best I can.

The only way to get HIV is by a human to human contact. There has to be direct contact through the blood stream of a person infected with HIV through semen, vaginal and/or anal excretions, and blood. There is no risk to getting HIV through casual contact. HIV also dies very quickly when exposed to air. There is no risk to getting HIV this way. So there is no need to worry.
