Welcome to ehealthforum,
If there is outbreak, the chances of infection transmission are high as the viral load is high during outbreak. If there is any skin break present, infection transfer becomes easy. If you suspect having contracted the infection, consider taking prophylactic treatment and visit your doctor/healthcare provider for further evaluation to confirm/rule out infection. Look out for development of any new symptoms.
Take care.
