Hi there,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about your risk of HIV acquisition through sharing a coffee cup with a person who is HIV positive.

From the information given, this scenario is determined to be of No Risk: (Transmission of HIV is not possible in the given scenario).

Social contact (such as sharing dishes, cups, toilets, kissing, hugging, and shaking hands) are all not avenues in which HIV can be transmitted (1).

Recommendation: No need for HIV test with the scenario provided, refer to a physician for other health related questions.

All the best,
