Response from Dr. Holodniy

1. Extremely unlikely. No reported cases that I am aware of. 2. Extremely unlikely, unless there was direct blood/body fluid contact, and exposure was significant (ie large amounts in open cuts, in the eyes, etc)

3.Protected sexual activities are permitted.

4.Sounds like a great mom. She should keep doing those things.
