Chances of HIV Transmission via Lukewarm Jaccuzi

May 27, 2009

How likely am I to have been infected with HIV if I had an open cut on my foot while in a public lukewarm Jaccuzi? Can HIV survive in any water (hot or cold) and thus be transmitted?

Response from Dr. Frascino


Your HIV-acquisition risk would be nonexistent, whether the Jacuzzi was steaming hot, icy cold or somewhere in between.
