Response from Ms. Southall

Hi You are HIV free from this experience. Transmission of HIV from a contaminated surface would require massive exposure to blood or other infected liquid from prolonged period of time.

You are not at risk for HIV transmission. Click on the link and it will take you to a page on our site that gives you information on how HIV can be transmitted.

be well and stay safe, Shannon
