    Exclamation scared still....

    I had dinner with my boyfriend Thursday night, we had sushi and he used his chopsticks to hand me a few pieces which i ate, obviously we kissed and slept in the same bed that night. We kissed Friday early morning and haven't seen him since. He got sick with some sort of stomach bug Saturday around 1 or 2pm. Well now its Sunday morning. So scared of getting sick still! help please. having bad anxiety and can't eat.

    Noroviruses (stomach bugs) are not transmitted through saliva. So you can't possibly get it by sharing utensils or kissing someone, unless you've kissed them immediately after they vomited. These germs are passed on through the fecal-oral route. You have to swallow poo or vomit particles to get it.
