I am a Crit Care/ER nurse and I never had a problem for over 26 years in picking up anything from a patient. It is a matter of using good infection control techniques...............wash you hands...............over and over.
I would check with your Dr. re your exposure to this type of patient and your own health problems.
I do not have pericarditis.
