A handshake??? Wow, that's definitely a little over the top! As has been said, kissing has not been determined to be a way of transmitting these infections - but that may also be determined as to just how much saliva a person comes into contact with too. The thing is, we just don't know.
Caution is a good thing when it comes to this, but paranoia is never helpful. People need to touch and spreading information that makes people paranoid of touching another person is never helpful.
